Rwanda – Healing Journey

The 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda left the country almost completely devastated, with tremendous consequences for mental health and social cohesion. This video highlights the testimonies of Genocide survivors and perpetrators who were able to heal from their psychological distresses thanks to community-based healing spaces created through Interpeace’s Societal Trauma Healing Programme, which uses a holistic approach to tackle mental health, foster social cohesion and reconciliation, and promote sustainable economic livelihoods.
