Itinerary

Visit Belgian memorial

The 10 stone columns you find here mark the spot where 10 Belgian UN peacekeepers were murdered on the first day of the genocide. Originally deployed to protect the home of moderate Prime Minister Agathe Uwilingiyimana, the soldiers were captured, disarmed and brought here by the Presidential Guard before being killed. Each stone column represents one of the soldiers and the horizontal cuts in it represent the soldier’s age. 

The bullet-sprayed building in which the soldiers died now houses a small exhibition on the genocide.

Visit Kigali Genocide memorial and Archive center: 

The biggest memorial center in the country, serves as an education center but also a burial place for approximately two hundred fifty nine Victims of the genocide, it teaches how the genocide was planned, executed and its consequences. Afterward we will also visit the Archive center at memorial which serves as a research center; you find more information as well as many tools that were used in the genocide.

Students experiencing how to sew peace baskets

As client have spent time  learning about the Genocide; we take this time as a fun time to learn how to make peace basket as part of relaxation, but it’s a project of reconciliation, in African culture when people sit down doing a same work, it is considered as a sign of understanding each other, forgiving each other etc..
