Rebuilding Rwanda after the genocide

There is hope. A remarkable young African Quaker called Adrien Niyongabo is touring Britain during March and telling of his efforts to bring Hutus and Tutsis together again at grassroots level in villages, prisons and displaced person camps in Rwanda and neighbouring Burundi. A genocide survivor himself, he conducts Alternatives to Violence Project workshops in which 10 Hutus and 10 Tutsis come together for an intensive weekend of learning and exercises. The results are profound and very moving. For more information contact Graham Thomas at

i want to thank the actors and producers of the film "shooting dogs" the problem is not about sensitivity to the survivors of rwandan genocide, to me as one of few people who survived 1994 rwandan genocide the problem is people around the world still dont know what happened in rwanda in 1994.
on my behalf i would like to thank everybody involved in this film and ask to keep memories alive.
thank you'

i have not seen the movie yet but as long as it potrays the message of naver again and reconciliation, am sure its a good movie.

as a survivor i have always wanted the world to document what happened in rwanda in 1994, this movie is one of my answers. keep good work guys.

It seems clear to me that the lesson learned here is that hope comes from those who would seem to have it least.

In the past few months i have become very passionate about the Rwanda Genocide. I watched the movie "Hotel Rwanda" during school and i was horrified at the amount of violence and suffereing these people had indured. I have not yet seen the film either but i hope to see it. God Bless the surviors and god bless the family & friends they lost.

As a Burundian,I lived the war where some members of our family were killed because they were simply Tutsi.

Despite the fact that we lost many,I believe that some People still are confident that they will attempt to chase away the minority tribe.

I believe teaching children from young Age,to love their Nation,is crucial.

I believe in these three values:1.Faith,2.Morality,3.Knowledge

The reason why I believe that if we acquire these principles,our People in Rwanda and Burundi will be able to live together again for generations to come,they will not hate one another because they are Hutu or Tutsi.

Let us continue to educate Children,they are hope and future Leaders.

How can I connect with your bolg to bring your information to Southern California? I am leading a Christian team to Rwanda in March for 2 1/2 weeks to sever the Rwandan people, but want my supports to be able to see and read real stories from Rwandan's themselves, Please see the blog i have just created at and any information you wish. Please pass this blog along to whomever you feel might want to share their story and help our team and supports understand how and what really has happened past and present in Rwanda.

God Bless

Scott Newman
