To commemorate the 1994 Genocide in Rwanda against the Tutsi, the embassy of Rwanda in Geneva has started an education programme that is targeted at young people.

The statement from the country’s ambassador to Switzerland Amb. François Xavier Ngarambe, the programme is to keep the memory alive while still connecting the link between the past, present and the future.

The ambassador made a presentation to young people of Rwanda in Geneva, Switzerland between the ages of 18 and 20 teaching them about the pre-colonial and post-colonial times.

The statement reads; ‘Educating the young generation on genocide is the best way to prepare them for their future responsibility as the leaders of tomorrow, to prevent and fight against genocide and all other forms of mass atrocities and violation of human rights.’

In his presentation, the ambassador said that the genocide and the activities that led to it was caused by colonial segregationist which was highly entrenched leading up to the killing of over millions of people in the genocide.

‘Most of the recurring questions from students were about reasons why the international community abandoned Rwanda during the Genocide; the origins of divisions among Rwandans; factors behind successful reconciliation; and how other countries can learn from Rwanda on peace, stability, and development after conflict.”

The programme did not have just students participating in it but lecturers as well.

This education and awareness programme will be done in partnership with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research   (UNITAR) as well as the EDUKI Foundation, a Geneva centre for education and awareness in international cooperation for the youth community. (The New Times)
