Posted in News

Unilever Rwanda staff members have commemorated the more than one million victims of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi and learned from Rwanda’s history to fight genocide ideology and build on the country’s progress.

Beginning their visit, the group toured the memorial’s three exhibits. The first one teaches about the history of Rwanda before and after the Genocide against the Tutsi, the second details the consequences of other genocides that happened around the world and the last part pays tribute to the children who were Killed in the Genocide against the Tutsi. The visit continued with laying wreaths on the burial place where more than 250,000 victims of Genocide are laid to rest.

Talking about the importance of such a visit and the commemoration event, David Ngarambe, the Supply Chain Manager of Unilever Rwanda, said that it teaches people, especially young people, the history of the Genocide and helps them to prevent genocide from happening again, not only in Rwanda but anywhere else in the world.

“Over 95 percent of the employees in the Unilever company are youths. So, we planned to bring them here to see what other youth like us did in the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi and learn from it. Afterward, we take measures to prevent it from happening again. So, as the survivors and every Rwandan in general, the best is yet to come. Let’s stand and work hard to achieve more for our future,” Mr Ngarambe said.

Sharing a message of hope to the survivors, Kalvin Kuria, the Country Manager of Unilever said there is a lot we have to achieve as survivors and good citizens of Rwanda.

“For us to be alive, it’s a great opportunity to use the best of the resources available. Let’s keep pushing and work hard for our better future,” he said.
