The new leadership of the Genocide survivor students association (AERG) at the National University of Rwanda (NUR) has pledged to minimize cases of trauma which is a challenge to the members of their association.
Sylvin Manirakiza, the president of the new committee says that fighting against trauma is the major objective on their agenda.
“Some of our members often face trauma during the period of commemoration of 1994 Genocide against Tutsi. We have set many objectives to achieve during our term but fighting trauma is our priority.”
Other targets to be achieved by the new leadership of AERG/NUR include running activities of the commemoration period, cleaning NUR Memorial site and other sites in the surrounding sectors of Huye District.
They will also mobilize members on understanding this year’s commemoration theme philosophy, community service such as rehabilitation of houses for Genocide victims and NUR internal and external advocacy among other objectives.
The new Executive committee of AERG/NUR is led by Sylvin Manirakiza as president, Alexandre Kubwimana as first Vice President, Jean Marie Vianney Uwizeyimana as the second Vice President and Solange Akayezu as Secretary.
This committee has also commissions namely: Social affairs, Gender, Security, Protocol, Production, Information and Documentation, Treasury, Sports and Culture.
AERG was created on 20th October 1996 by twelve students of the National University of Rwanda. Later on, it was extended to other higher learning institutions and secondary schools.
