Reconciliation Village was established as part of the Rwandan government’s initiative to heal the nation from the effects of the 1994 genocide. It was designed as a common place where victims and perpetrators would live and learn to forgive each other.

The main source of income of the villagers is agriculture, they own a small portion of land where they grow food crops, both for food and the excess is sold to the market. They also keep cows and generate income from selling milk.

The community size is 300 people living in the village of 56 houses built by the government. Both electricity and water are available and health/education services are also available nearby.

The Chairman of Reconciliation Village, Kaligwemo Frederick and his wife, Esperance, look forward to welcoming you.
