We’ll be hearing from two survivors of the Rwandan genocide, also known as the genocide against the Tutsi, that occurred between 7 April and 15 July 1994 during the Rwandan Civil War.

The Kumva and Kwibuka program is a much-needed school incursion which brings the issues of humanity, genocide, trauma and resilience to light… This is an experience all students should have an opportunity to be immersed in.

“Hearing from survivors of the Rwandan Genocide was life-changing, and I don’t say this lightly. The students and teachers in the room all felt that this was one of the most enriching experiences of their lives”

Head of History and Instructional Coach Moriah College

The messages of the programme are universal: genocide always begins with exclusion and so the program is built on the principle of inclusion…

“It is important to share my story to honour my loved ones who have been taken away.

The benefit of telling my story is finding my own voice, peace, and hope.

By sharing my story, it increases people’s understanding of the survivor experience…”


Noel, survivor and presenter of Kumva & Kwibuka
