|On April 7th, 2004, a historical genocide began in Rwanda: a genocide that progressed at the fastest rate in human history. 10,000 lives were slaughtered a day over 100 days, totaling one million. This genocide has been now recorded officially as "Genocide against Tutsis."|
On April 7th, 2014, Rwanda commemorates the 20th anniversary, with all citizens murmuring "Never again."
But, Rwanda does not live in the tragic pains of the past. Over the past 20 years, Rwanda has become an example of a thunder bird that relives out of ashes.
Rwanda has recorded a remarkable success in many fronts, including economic development.
The following article describes this success although partially focusing more on woman empowerment. So I quote it as written by Dr. Michael Grosspietsch, Executive Director of Global Engagement Institute. - Jeffrey
