In the meantime, as you try to spot nearly the human interactions and you question the why of this or that, you imperatively remark that human interactions are results of a successional and transgenerational manners, whether someone is directly or indirectly the master of them.
For this Bridge Program 2020-2025, AJECL took its time to revisit the Rwandans’ history mainly stained by conflicts, hate, wars and sadly by the Genocide perpetrated against Tutsis in 1994. Indeed, we saw that the last 10 years of the 20th Century instilled terror and sadness among Rwandans and their neighbors due to war and the 1994 Genocide against Tutsis.
Moreover, we took time to research about the origin of that tragedy and we found that the roots of what happened in Rwanda by the end of 20th Century -to recall the 1994 Genocide against Tutsis is a sensational growth of a seed of divisionism implanted by White colonizers preached in their politics of “Divide to reign/Diviser pour regner”.
Hence, considering the facts that the ethnic-based divisionism started in the 1st Generation of the 20th Century and then metamorphosed into wars and the 1994 Genocide against Tutsis in the 4th Generation of the same Century, we stated that each generation has to think about and prepare a kind of a decent legacy to leave to the following/next generation.
As an illustration, let’s consider a Century as a parent with 4 children. The 1st born is considered as the 1st Generation of a Century, the 2nd born as the 2nd Generation, the 3rd born as the 3rd generation and as well as the last-born is identical to the 4th generation of a Century. So, we hope that the time each generation will understand which responsibility it holds towards one another in terms of sustaining the culture of peace, culture of love and a non-violence approach, we will live in a worthy world. It’s in this regard that AJECL is proposing this Bridge Program 2020-2025.
