The Loomba Trust, in partnership with Oxfam and the Mayor of Kigali, came together to empower and support 850 poor widows, including 500 survivors of the genocide through a range of self-help initiatives, including mushroom growing.

His Excellency, President Paul Kagame hosted a dinner to officially launch the Loomba Trust in Rwanda and the partnership programme on the eve of the official week of mourning for the 1994 genocide, in which 1,000,000 innocent victims, including half of the male heads of all households, were slaughtered.
