The Ituze Center has partnered with AVEGA (Association des Veuves du Genocide Agahoza) since September 2019 to teach Breath-Body-Mind in four hostels for elderly genocide survivors. We offer weekly classes in Huye, Nyanza, Nyamata, and monthly two-day workshops in Rusizi. These classes are helping the residents to overcome many of the symptoms of PTSD including feelings of isolation, trouble sleeping, dissociation, anxiety, and depression.
We have also offered trainings for the counselors and psychologists of the Impinganzima hostels in teaching Breath-Body-Mind to empower them to reinforce the work we do between our visits.
