Press Statement: DGPR Calls for more Psychological and Economic Empowerment of Genocide Survivors and the Youth born out of Rape during the Genocide.

The Democratic Green Party of Rwanda joins all Rwandans in the 22nd commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. We stand in unison with the nation in fighting the genocide ideology.

DGPR would like to take on this opportunity to call upon the Rwandan Government and all stakeholders to add more efforts in the psychological and economic empowerment of all Genocide Survivors and the youth born out of rape during the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.

DGPR calls upon the Government of Rwanda and all concerned stakeholders to double their efforts in the social welfare program of the Genocide survivors, especially the provision of basic needs like shelter, food, education and employment opportunities to the youth survivors and those born out of rape.

DGPR once again calls for an urgent attention to the elderly survivors who were left with no offspring or relatives. Most of them do not have physical strengths and no means of survival. We call for a special fund and or a project for the elderly at the community level, which will help to address this problem.

We will continue to stand with fellow Rwandans in the remembrance of our beloved ones, who lost their lives in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.  Never again.
