Ross Trust thankyou
Absolutely beautiful!
You have treated Rwanda with the level of respect and dignity its people deserve. It’s probably the best website I’ve seen on Rwanda. Congratulations on all your work with this - very important and impressive.
Benny Callaghan, formerly Outward Bound
The rich combination of video, text, images and interactive features is striking. The strong focus on first person interviews detailing their stories and perspectives of what happened and how they are trying to collectively recover is impressive.
Its potential value to future generations of students makes RwandanStories a worthy winner.
United Nations Media Peace Awards 2011
RwandanStories is a sensitive, powerful and engaging website that addresses not only the tragedy of the Rwandan genocide but also the extraordinary story of recovery and healing to the present.
It addresses important issues of forgiveness, reconciliation, racism, bullying, conflict and healing that are at the centre of what it means to be human.
