Republic of Rwanda
Welcome to the office website of FARG
Following the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, the Government of National Unity embarked on ambitious development programs to rebuild the country that had undergone a systematic destruction of life and property caused by the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi. With a lot of resilience, the country rose from the ashes and the failed state nature in which it had been taken into by the genocide perpetrators in 1994 into an economical viable and stable country, as it is today.
Among the priorities of the government of National Unity in 1994 was to rehabilitate and support the Tutsi genocide survivors who had undergone tremendous suffering suffered most tremendously. Not only had their families and breadwinners been wiped out, but most of their properties had also been lost and destroyed, leaving survivors so vulnerable and in urgent need of assistance.
It is in this regard that The Fund for Neediest Survivors of Genocide in Rwanda “FARG” was established by Law No 02/98 of 22/01/1998 to provide assistance to survivors of genocide perpetrated against the Tutsi in Rwanda from October 1, 1990 to December 31, 1994. This Fund started its operations in the year 1998 and has expanded its scope of operation over the period. This law was amended by law No 69/2008 of 30/12/2008. This law was also amended and replaced by law no 81/2013 of 11/9/2013.
