In 1994, over a period of three months, one of the deadliest massacres in human history began in Rwanda, claiming the lives of a million people. The commemoration event will be an opportunity to remember the victims of the genocide, reflect and renew our commitment to “never again” allow such atrocities. 

The event will also celebrate the resilience of the Rwandan people and their determination to create a more prosperous future together.
