IBUKA is a high profile lobby group with a particular interest in addressing justice for survivors and coordinating / leading joint survivors’ projects on a national level.
A direct translation of IBUKA is “remember”, which is the objective of the umbrella association. It comprises 15 member organisations, which work to perpetuate the memory of genocide and provide support to genocide survivors.
The vision of IBUKA is that Rwandan society should be a place where the memory of the genocide is preserved and where all the genocide survivors are socially included, financially able and live with full dignity.
The organisation’s mission is to help co-ordinate activities to help genocide survivors and to represent them in dealings with third parties.
The organisation was established in 1995, and is based in Kigali.
