Who We Are

Association de la Jeunesse pour la Promotion des Droits de l’Homme et le Développement (AJPRODHO–JIJUKIRWA)is a local Non-Governmental Organization founded in the aftermath of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi by students attending the National University of Rwanda to ensure that the youth become the spearhead of national reconstruction after their devastating role in the 1994 Genocide perpetrated against the Tutsi a result of manipulation by selfish leaders.

Since its founding, AJPRODHO has transitioned from a small student association to a Non-Governmental organization working to improve the rights of disadvantaged youth, women and children in Rwanda through Human Rights promotion and protection with 25 years of experience.
