Youth Programmes

Mentorship Programme

Launched by Her Excellency Mrs Jeannette Kagame in 2013 with the girls mentorship programme, the main activity consisted of coordinating and facilitating the mentorship of young women - survivors of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi and members of the Students Association of Genocide Survivors, AERG, on critical thinking, decision-making, and confidence building.

This programme later evolved to also cater for boys and young men from the same background. It consisted of a mentorship and leadership youth forum themed ‘Strong and Dignified’, and focusing on the psychological issues experienced by young men in AERG, as a result of their experiences in the Genocide against the Tutsi.
