19 years after surviving the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis that shook all the pillars of their lives, they are fine just because they have been striving for self reliance.
This was said by genocide survivors in Burera district who say their remaining problem is their children who finish secondary school but fail to get means to get to the universities.

Fabien Niyonsenga the coordinator of IBUKA in Burera district says for Rwanda to stand against and fight the effects of genocide that was perpetrated against Tutsi in 1994 permanently, it needs to prepare the youth.
Most of the genocide survivors’ youth in this district finish secondary schools and those who fail to get the government pass mark for the scholarship fail to get means for higher education. “We need support for the education of our youth who cannot provide for themselves for them to be able to compete on international job markets with other Rwandans.”
Samuel Sembagare the mayor of Burera district promised the district’s continuous support to survivors of 1994 genocide against Tutsis in any possible way. He asked genocide survivors to be strong while commemorating striving to be self reliant.
