Rwanda's Next Steps

Rwanda's Next Steps

WYPR's Mary Rose Madden went to Rwanda with the International Reporting Project for two weeks in November 2011.

Throughout their travels, they went to the country's capital, Kigali, and into the rural countryside.

They met doctors, genocide-rape counselors, Rwandan journalists, President Kagame, and many Rwandans who were very busy farming, making charcoal, or biking their goods through "the land of a thousand hills."
