Welcome message

Global Initiative for Environment and Reconciliation (GER) is a non-governmental organization registered in Rwanda with legal status: N°66 /RGB/NGO 2017. Our aim is to contribute to peace and reconciliation process and improving environmental conditions in Rwanda, Great lakes as well. We support the existing reconciliation process, community recovery and prevention of violence.    

We facilitate interactions with communities, local leaders, religious leaders, young people to address the existing effects of the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi, and consider environment as a driving factor of peace building, healing the past and improving livelihood of our people.

Our focus is to empower the next generation in becoming the agents of change in their respective communities for their bright future.

We document success stories for experience sharing with decision makers, stakeholders and academia to support post-conflict communities around the world.

I believe that changes are possible when community is empowered and engaged in the process. Among more than 1500 people who participated in our interventions, we record positive changes so far; relations improved, community initiatives established and community ownership to ensure the sustainability.

We appreciate our partners for their contribution and we will keep updating about our progress. We invite interested individuals, foundations and organizations to support our activities. Do not hesitate to contact us via

Fighting stigma and discrimination for female sex workers

What   I grained  in regard  to  the prevention  of  new HIV infection, before  the training I  used  to think that  if I  happen  to be infected I would  directly  infect others. However, I came to know that doing so would be harming myself, and I realised this thanks to the training.  As a result of the trainings, I no longer have these negative misconceptions in my mind.  Instead I must advise and teach others according to what I leant so that they may develop a positive way of thinking.  I also learnt that to have access to health services is my rights” Said one of female sex workers.  Read More
