Bugesera: AVEGA to train more trauma councilors

AVEGA to train more trauma councilors

In a bid to control cases of trauma among Genocide survivors in Bugesera district which tend to rise during the genocide commemoration periods, AVEGA Agahozo is planning to train more trauma councilors to deal with the increasing trauma cases.

“We have counselors and a psycho-social worker in each sector of the whole district but the issue is that many of them are aging and we have to train new ones to replace those looking at retiring, said Gratia Mukakigeri, AVEGA coordinator in Bugesera district.

For the survivors of the Genocide, AVEGA Agahozo remains an oasis of hope. AVEGA in Bugesera district has 437 members of which some are above 90 years of age.

 “Those we trained years back are aging. Young people should take over to handle psycho-social issues and trauma,” said Gratia Mukakigeri, AVEGA coordinator in Bugesera district.

With increase in trauma occurrences, the organisation needs new young trauma councilors, she added.

Seraphine Mukamusoni, 56  a trained councilor said “ when you look at me I am aging meaning I no longer have the energy to handle, so I  would like the young blood to take over and help us deal with trauma issues” she revealed.
