"Recognized as the International Day of Reflection, April 7 begins the national commemoration period with Kwibuka (Remembrance) and concludes with Liberation Day ‪on July 4, marking the 100-day period in 1994 that resulted in over one million people being so tragically killed."

Rwanda has seen huge economical and technological growth in recent years thanks to good leadership brought by the president, Paul Kagame after the genocide.
