With the funding from European Union, Interpeace Rwanda is seeking to support the implementation of Rwanda Government’s mental health strategy (2020-2024), Through the ‘’Reinforcing community capacity for social cohesion and reconciliation through societal trauma healing in Bugesera District’’ Programme, Interpeace supported the training of young women and men in Bugesera District to acquire TVET skills in the trades of their choice.
