Eugenie Mukeshimana

The United Nations is this week remembering the 1994 genocide in Rwanda when extremist Hutus massacred about 800,000 people, mainly Tutsis and moderate Hutus.

This year's theme is "learning from history to shape a bright future".

The United Nations Secretary-General says that Rwanda has learned from the appalling tragedy of 1994 and so has the world.

Eugenie Mukeshimana, a survivor of the genocide who now lives in the United States is founder of "Genocide Survivors Support Network".

She explained to Derrick Mbatha why she started the organization in 2011.
