ONCE AGAIN RWANDA HROC IS HOSTING the Seventh International Training of the Healing and Rebuilding Our Communities from 21st February – 12th March in Musanze. 10 Participants from USA, Burundi, Kenya and Rwanda will spend the 3 weeks expanding their knowledge in the field of community trauma healing and building trust through participating and leading workshops. With the help of HROC leading facilitators and the experience and testimonies from the communities throughout the Training, we are looking forward to the next HROC facilitators.
FOLLOWING THE TRAINING we had with youth survivors of genocide in April, we were asked by IBUKA (genocide survivors association) in Kimonyi to have a workshop with youth survivors (or children of survivors) and youth whose parents participated in genocide or imprisoned. This workshop gathered 18 youth, 6 young men and 12 young women though we finished with 14 participants.
HROC RWANDA RECENTLY HOSTED two Basic HROC workshops for people with disabilities and people with disabled family members.
“Many people despise us and discriminate against us because of our disabilities. Thank you HROC for working with us, listening to us, and please continue to represent us in the community.”
IN MARCH, Healing and Rebuilding Our Communities Rwanda embarked on a Growing Together in Rwanda project hosting 2 workshops in Kibuye, Rwanda. Growing Together works to address the root causes of chronic malnutrition by providing both theoretical knowledge of proper nutrition and the practical skills needed to grow and prepare a variety of foods.
