Your donation today can change lives and save lives. Here’s how.
$30 puts one young person through peace education at the Kigali Genocide Memorial.
“You learn to ask, how do we avoid another genocide happening? You learn it’s not only an event in the past but a probability in the future if you don’t contribute to prevention.”
$100 funds one participant through our peace building program in the Central African Republic.
“I was still planning revenge when I joined an Aegis peace training programme. After we went through trauma healing and the forgiveness exercise, I had given up my desire for revenge. That night I was able to sleep again.”
$250 helps take a leader from a community in crisis through our Changemaker program.
“The chiefs went back to their villages and started telling people, “We can mobilise our young people to fight, and they lose their lives. Why don’t we mobilise them to go to school?” Lives have been saved.”
If you lived through the Genocide against the Tutsi, and you have experiences which you would like to record for the future – and/or artefacts you would like to donate – then please get in touch with the team at the Genocide Archive of Rwanda, which is located at the Kigali Genocide Memorial.
