AVEGA-AGAHOZO, is a non-profit organisation conceived and finally created on January 15th 1995 , by 50 widows who themselves are genocide survivors. The association was approved by Ministerial decree n°156/05 on 30th October 1995. Its members include:

  • The founder members
  • Registered members
  • Honorary members
  • Sympathisers
  • Decentralisation

AVEGA’S head office is based in the Remera area of Kigali . However a strategy of decentralisation, which aims to help AVEGA meet the needs of its members all over the country, has led to the establishment of two regional offices.
