The Rwanda Healing Project

Location:  Gisenyi,
Project Description: 

Launched in 2004, this multi-faceted program deals with the grief of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and offers education, development, and hope for life in the future. Working with genocide survivors in the Rugerero District near Gisenyi, Barefoot Artists has completed a beautiful Genocide Memorial Park which has become the official memorial site for the area. We have launched a number of programs to transform the physical and human environment of the Rugerero Survivors’ Village through art, health, community, and economic development initiatives.
