 This is about Emmanuel and his friends who left everything behind and stood up for the education and the village Kunda which is located in Gisenyi, northwest of Rwanda along with the DR Congo border gate. During the genocide, huge number of Rwandans escaped the country through many ways like this over the borders. Women saved most of the children by hiding them from killers during 1994. Women, they‘ve always remained kind and kept saving the world.  Guys like Emmanuel, his friends and youth of Rwanda are living in oneness as the citizens of Rwandans after what the country had gone through. The government has regularly put efforts in the process of strengthening the nation, the act of forgiveness for all and promoting youth to make families.
