Supporting Survivors

Having failed to prevent a genocide, I strongly believe that we as members of the international community have the moral imperative to support survivors.” Jacqueline Murekatete (Founder of Genocide Survivors Foundation)

At Genocide Survivors Foundation (GSF), we believe one of the best ways we can honor the memory of the millions of men, women and children who have lost their lives to genocide is by caring for the widows and orphans they left behind.

Working in partnership with local survivors’ associations, GSF aims to support programs and services for survivors and their children in the following areas:

  • Education
  • Economic empowerment
  • Legal and Advocacy
  • Health and social services
