 On April 7th every year Rwanda holds a Kwibuka ceremony, honoring the million lives lost through genocide 20 years ago. Kwibuka is the Kinyarwanda word for ‘remember’ and describes the global commemoration framework. Kwibuka20 calls on the world to stand against genocide in three key ways:

- To remember: Honoring the memory of those who died. Offering support to those who survived.

- To unite: Rwanda shows that reconciliation through shared human values is possible. We ask the world to do the same.

- To renew: As we build Rwanda anew, we are humbled to share our experiences and learn from others. Let’s create a better world together.
