Rwanda: Twenty Years Later

It’s been two decades since the hundred-day mass slaughter, aimed at the country’s minority Tutsi population, and Rwanda is starting to see success in economic growth and public health. We’re talking about how far the country has come, the struggles it still faces, as well as ongoing soul-searching by Rwandans and the international community.
