In Rwanda, more than 90% of the population believes in Christianity, and roughly 30% are Protestants. In 1994, a shocking genocide against the Tutsi occurred in Rwanda, taking away the lives of approximately 1 million people. After the genocide, Rwanda has been committed to studiously growing its economy. Although the poverty rate has lowered, nearly 40% of the population in Rwanda is still living below the poverty line.
We advocate post-genocide peace and reconciliation in the Southern province by strengthening the local reconciliation cell groups composed of community members. We empower the members with psycho-social skills and enhance their living standards to sustain their restored relationships. We also mobilise rural churches in the Western province to practice Integral Mission by serving the most vulnerable people in the communities.
