Envisioning a world without genocide or mass atrocities.
Aegis developed a successful model for peace education in Rwanda and have introduced the inclusion of peace education as a cross-cutting element in Rwanda’s national curriculum, reaching 100% of children enrolled in school.
Documenting the Past
Aegis gathers, preserves and provides access to survivor testimony and documentary evidence of genocide to support learning and reconciliation in Rwanda and beyond.
Change-Makers for Peace
The Kigali Genocide Memorial serves as a beacon of humanity and hope, inspiring people of influence in other countries to be change-makers, saving lives and creating foundations of economic sustainability.
Aegis hosts major public figures at the Kigali Genocide Memorial each week – giving them a unique chance to remember and reflect on policy implications of mass atrocities.
Survivors’ stories are central to Aegis’s work, but some remain in serious need. Aegis helps some of the worst-affected to put their lives back on track – whatever that might take.
Aegis’s social enterprises not only help to make its work sustainable; in Rwanda they provide work and training opportunities for disadvantaged genocide survivors.
