CARSA serves local communities by supporting their journey towards healing, forgiveness, reconciliation, and holistic development through five interconnected programs that are seeking to help families to reconcile. Survivors and their direct offenders go through the Trauma Healing and Reconciliation program, addressing their mental and spiritual needs.
Youth- who are often the children of the beneficiaries of the Trauma Healing and Reconciliation program, participate in the Peace Education program, which focuses on empowering youth to be sustainable peace builders in their communities.
High-5 Rwanda also focuses on the younger generation, as children are being discipled, and teachers and parents are being trained to empower children.
In addition, Community Empowerment recognizes the need for overcoming poverty as a key element of reconciliation while Mugina Peace Farm acts as a training center and model farm for modern agriculture in Rwanda and generates income for CARSA.
Finally, the Cow for Peace program, uniquely and creatively address both the physical needs of the families of genocide survivor and perpetrators while supporting them on their journey towards healing and forgiveness through the sharing of a cow.
