Our Mission is literally shown in the official name of the organization;
“Healing and Rebuilding Our Communities.”
HROC Rwanda is leading psychological supports for people and communities to heal their traumatic conflicts and rebuild their peaceful lives.
Healing and Rebuilding Our Communities (HROC) is an organization established in 2003 in Rwanda, which is providing community workshops and mental support of its own psychological approach.
Despite as a country having been plagued by a brutal history of colonization and genocide, Rwanda has been dramatically developed for these decades and striving for peacefully united nation. On the other hand, it is also true that there are people in communities still suffering from those genocide miseries as well as domestic violence or any kind of traumatic experiences.
HROC mainly offers three-day workshops in those communities, collaborating with local Healing Companions based in the communities. A great number of people have gotten steps to move forward for their better futures in these fifteen years, and HROC hopes more and more people will get chances to follow it, with its consecutive aspiration. HROC Basic Workshops have been operative in 96 communities so far in Rwanda, with twelve International Workshops completed from 2003 to 2018.
Thanks to understanding of our head organization African Great Lakes Initiative, we are now operating other more projects than Healing Workshops, any of which are related to developing peaceful and sustainable growth of people and the country (see more).
