A team of 8 Korean citizens who are conducting their internship at the Korean International Cooperation Agency in Rwanda have visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial to learn more about Rwanda’s history and the work that is being done by young Rwandans to ensure that Genocide will never happen again anywhere in the world.

Sejong Park, who spoke on behalf of the team members, said that Rwanda’s tragic experience can serve as a lesson and make the world a better place.

“At first I was very shocked when we studied this case of the Genocide that took place in Rwanda. But after touring the memorial, I feel that we all need to learn from this Rwandan experience and do the exceptional thing so that Genocide will never happen elsewhere in this world,” Sejong expressed.

The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) contributed funds to construct the new entrance building at the Kigali Genocide Memorial, which was formally opened in 2015.
