Participants also exhibited a more proactive attitude towards mediation and reconciliation efforts, and increased involvement in family and community affairs. Claudine is one of the participants who have finally been able to face the past. I feel alive again.
Words of peace and healing through music
Rwanda is obviously not alone in its post-conflict trauma healing experience. Millions of people have more recently been affected by civil war in countries like Syria and Yemen.
When the wars abate and reconstruction begins, Rwanda will certainly offer important lessons for these countries as they embark on their own trauma healing and reconciliation efforts.

Making Peace Through Apology
More from The Honest Guys. Up to now, participants from 19 different countries from all over the world have attended and benefitted from this school.
The main teachers will be Dr Rhiannon Lloyd, a former medical doctor and psychiatrist from Wales, who founded the HWEC workshop, Pastor Joseph Nyamutera, director of Rabagirana Ministries, who lived through the heat of the genocide, and Pastor George de Vuyst, a missionary who has served over 20 years in Ukraine and graduate of the International School of Reconciliation in Kigali, Rwanda.
The course is not only theoretical but it also equipped me with practical tools to equip others to minister cross culturally. The fellowship with different cultures was part of my personal transformation.
Spiritual and Emotional Healing Scriptures
We had the opportunity to apply what we had learnt and this gave me confidence to use the HWEC workshop back in my own country. I witnessed wonderful reconciliation and healing when I presented the workshop in South Africa. It was a great turning point in my life: God healed my deep wounds and I found HOPE for my marriage and family, the church and my country after going through war.
I strongly recommend to you this School of Reconciliation! I learned that before you start healing others you should be healed first and experience God's touch on you. I want to become a peace giver to this dark world. On a personal level, ISOR gave me words, thoughts, and Biblical references from which I can speak about the hope that is within me to reach out to the people and works that God has placed in my path.
