Education

The Kigali Genocide Memorial is an important place of remembrance and learning about the Genocide against the Tutsi. It is through education that we can prevent mass atrocities from occurring in our communities.

A number of education programmes are run by the memorial, both onsite and in communities across Rwanda. Here you can learn about the work being done by the Kigali Genocide Memorial and Aegis Trust to build a peaceful and prosperous future.

You can also find resources for learning, research and teaching at the Rwanda Genocide Education Portal.
