“I have found home here where I have the chance to educate other people on genocide against the Tutsi, one of the most horrifying events in the human history. I love my work; it is an experience of dedication relating to people with personal stories”.
Visitor Engagement Officer
“My father, brother and half of my family are buried here. So, working here is a fulfilling duty as a survivor, as well as an opportunity share some of the country’s history and experiences as a part of it myself. I also help teaching others about ways to prevent future genocides and achieving reconciliation in other countries in turmoil.”
“I believe young people must have a better understanding of their past to become active citizens in crafting a more peaceful, tolerant; inclusive and secure world. As a mother raising children in a post genocide era, it is satisfying to know that through my work at the memorial, I am passing on a legacy of a generation free from genocide”.
“I am honoured to be part of the team that has a mission to revive our history and also to protect it, knowing that there are people who deny it, people who don’t want it told. We are custodians of this history”.
Front Desk Officer
“Sharing with visitors at the Memorial about my country’s history including lessons from the Genocide against the Tutsi, it provides me with the opportunity to help build critical thinking skills, promoting knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that help prevent future genocides”.
“It is a fulfilling experience for me waking up every day, knowing I am working to support survivors to remember their loved ones and providing an informative and educational experience for visitors to the Memorial”.
