Peace House and Village Children
We visited a new home constructed for Stephanie (one of the victims). It has three rooms and no running water or electricity. It has a separate kitchen in the back that has a wood burning stove and a pit toilet. It costs the equivalent of $10,000 for materials but the labor is free due to the public service projects. The land belonged to the victim before the genocide so there is no cost to her.
We saw many local children from the village and none had ever seen a picture of themselves. Kristen showed them the video she took of them and they were mesmerized. The pictures tell the story…
