The month of April marks 20 years since the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. CARE pauses to remember the thousands of lives that were lost and honor those who were taken away too soon and too tragically. We pledge to continue working with the people of Rwanda towards a stronger future that is beneficial for all. And we ask the world to join us in the spirit of this year’s commemoration theme to remember, unite and renew.
CARE Rwanda will continue to support the country’s development by placing special focus on working alongside poor women and children because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty.
