Delivering Justice

Nothing can erase or make up for the horror and trauma of what survivors have been through.

But we try to ensure survivors receive restorative justice — where steps are taken to try and restore the quality of their lives to the same level as before the genocide.

This could be in the form of, for example, compensation, housing or livelihoods.

Genocide survivors have a right to restorative justice and fulfilling that right and having their experience recognised contributes hugely to their being able to rebuild their lives and successfully integrate into society.

We and our partners work hard to deliver restorative justice to survivors in Rwanda through various ways including looking for funding for new legal programmes and legal experts, supporting the documentation of of all legal cases of unresolved genocide-related crimes and lobbying.
