Welcome to Ibuka
welcome to ibuka
Thank you for visiting us here at IBUKA. The word ‘Ibuka’ means ‘remember’. We preserve the memory of the 1994 genocide of Tutsi, we support survivors in overcoming its continuing effects, and we work to prevent further genocide.
IBUKA is an independent and non-profit oriented organization legally recognized by the government of Rwanda. We gather genocide survivors associations and act as an umbrella to those associations. We were formed in 1995 and now have fifteen survivors’ member associations throughout Rwanda. Our vision is: becoming an organization of national and international reference in relation to genocide prevention and the healing of memories.
We invite you to explore this website in order to gain a better understanding of our work. We hope you will join us. And we offer you a warm welcome!
Response to the Statement of President Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania at the 50th Anniversary of the African Union Summit of 26 May 2013
President Kikwete, to the shock of the survivors of the Genocide against the Tutsi, expressed support for FDLR, former genocidaires and a terrorist group declared as such by the US government and under sanctions and international indictment by the US, the United Nations, the African Union, the European Union, and many other international organizations.
