SEVOTA works to rebuild the human relationships that were destroyed during the genocide in Rwanda. It is focused on widows and orphans, and its activities extend to all districts of the country. It was founded in 1994 in Kamonyi District.
SEVOTA helps its beneficiaries to organise themselves in order to analyse their own problems and those of the community and to find appropriate solutions. It envisions a society where human dignity is valued and where men, women, and children support each other for their personal development. SEVOTA has the mission of contributing to an improvement of the moral, social, political, cultural, and economic living conditions of its beneficiaries. The organisation has the overall objective of promoting activities relating to peace, reconciliation, and the promotion of human rights - specifically women's rights and the rights of vulnerable children, through the creation of spaces for dialogue and capacity-building.
