The delegation from the European Union in October, visited a citizen forum in Rusatira sector, Huye District, while they convened their usual monthly meeting.

Post-genocide Rwanda inherited various social wounds as a result of the genocide and effects of living in exile for some people who lived in the region and abroad as refugees. These events affected people both physically and psychologically. In order to contribute to the consolidation of peace in the Rwandan context, Never Again Rwanda in collaboration with Interpeace established a 4-year Societal Healing and Participatory governance for peace program in 2015.
