Genocide's Legacy

Over 20 years after the Rwandan genocide, during which assailants raped about 250,000 women, the 20,000 or so babies born from the tragedy are coming of age.
 
As they’ve grown amidst challenges such as poverty, HIV and domestic abuse, the NGO Foundation Rwanda has supported some of them with free therapy, school tuition and camps where they can meet other kids like themselves.
 
The Washington Post, with a grant from the International Women’s Media Foundation, interviewed 3 families on the eve of the massacre’s 23rd anniversary to learn their stories and their hopes for the future.
