Nestled in the heart of Africa, the tiny republic of Rwanda has faced relentless social and political upheaval in recent years. The tragic genocide which peaked in 1994 left nearly a million dead in just three months.

A lush land of green sprawling hills and volcanoes made famous by Gorillas in the Mist, Rwanda remains one of the poorest countries in the world with no resources other than its people.

Despite some remarkable achievements and global acclaim as a pioneer in African development, the country continues to face enormous challenges and average Rwandans still struggle to survive.
