Members of Association of Students Survivor of Genocide from IPRC Kicukiro have visited the Kigali Genocide Memorial to remember victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi and learn about history of Rwanda before, during and after Genocide.

The group toured different parts of the museum that teach about the history of Rwanda, the consequences of genocide as well as the approaches of Rwanda in fighting genocide ideologies and how Rwandans are rebuilding the nation after the genocide.

The students also laid wreaths on the burial place where more than 250, 000 victims are laid to rest. This activity was followed by observing a minute of silence to pay respects to genocide victims.

Sharing his message after the visit, Nyaramba Elton, the Coordinator of AERG Indatwa, IPRC Kicukiro said that Rwandans especially youth should fill the gap that was left by those who lost their lives in the Genocide against the Tutsi.

“Genocide took away our beloved ones, especially children who would be adults today. We should fill this gap and do good as they would do if they would be alive today. As young people, who were born after the genocide, we should visit memorials to learn about the genocide history and commit to prevent it from happening again,” said Elton.

Sam Shyaka, a member of AERG Indatwa said that Rwandan youth should uphold Rwandan values and acknowledge the good governance that contributed to the betterment of our country until today.
