Genocide survivors in Remera sector, Ngoma district commended the Ndi Umunyarwanda government for program which lets Rwandans openly apologise for their role in the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi as a way towards reconciliation.

“Through, Ndi Umunyarwanda, we were able to reconcile and develop socially,” says Donatha Uwantege, genocide survivor.

“Ndi Umunyarwanda program made Rwandans analyze impacts of the genocide and strive to fight its ideology,” says Aphrodise Nambaje, mayor of Ngoma district.

“Ndi Umunyarwanda” program is an initiative which aims at helping Rwandans to openly talk about their history, repent, forgive, and heal the scars of the bad experiences the country went through; in order to strengthen the culture of accountability as well as unity and reconciliation.

It was started by “Arts for Peace” in association with Imbuto Foundation, Ministry of Youth and ICT, Ministry of Local Government and Ministry of Education.
