The Kigali Genocide Memorial was launched in April 2004 on the 10th Anniversary of the Rwandan Genocide. This Centre is well built on a place in Kigali where over 250,000 people were buried after genocide. These graves are obvious assistant inflections of the cost of ignorance in Africa. The site is an enduring monument to   fatalities of Rwanda genocide. It is a place for people to mourn for their loved ones that yielded to the genocide. It contains an eternal exposition of the Rwandan genocide and a display of other genocides around the world.

The Batwa (Pygmy) will demonstrate hunting techniques, gather honey, point out medicinal plants and demonstrate how to make bamboo cups. Guests are invited to the sacred Garama Cave, once a refuge for the Batwa, where the women of the community perform a sorrowful song which echoes eerily around the depths of the dark cave, and leaves guests with a moving sense of the richness of this fading culture.
