Observance of 30 Years Since Genocide in Rwanda

Observance of 30 Years Since Genocide in Rwanda

Clothes hang to dry in the Mbyo Village in the Bugesera District of Rwanda.

Mbyo Village is a reconciliation village, established as part of Rwanda's "Unity and Reconciliation" initiative to foster national unity and collective progress. These villages represent one of several projects initiated by the Rwandan government in response to the 1994 genocide. Within these villages, survivors of the genocide live alongside repentant ex-perpetrators, promoting coexistence and healing.

2024 marks the 30th observance of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, one of the darkest chapters in human history. More than one million people – overwhelmingly Tutsi, but also Hutu and others who opposed the genocide – were systematically killed in less than three months.
