Social cohesion and reconciliation
The genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda had severe effects on the lives of Rwandans in all aspects. Among these, was their mental health, social cohesion, and livelihoods. In the response to effects of such an atrocity, societal healing should be conceptualized and approached based on a multisystem framework that considers these three aspects. It is in relation to this background that, Haguruka along with partners, is implementing the project of “Reinforcing community capacity for social cohesion and reconciliation through societal trauma healing in Rwanda’’ Programme.” Our main objective is to strengthen Psychosocial and economic resilience for sustainable peace among communities.
Through this project, we aim to contribute to the consolidation of peace and inclusive Rwanda society, enabled to overcome the wounds of the past, peacefully manage conflicts and diversity, and empowered to influence that responsive to citizen priorities.
