When a large number of children were orphaned by the genocide, it became difficult for many of them to find people to replace their families and get advice from. Twahirwa Deborah tells Tuyishimire Florence the ways orphans can see love and comfort in the world so they can hope for a brighter future, and how all Rwandans must forget about their differences and become one family.

"...you know Rwanda was hurt and Rwandese were hurt too. The war that took place in Rwanda affected negatively everybody in such way that it could not be explained, since, before the war, Rwandans were living in harmony." Twahirwa Deborah

"There are orphans who might be my age with bad manners yet need make a better future and there are those without families to advise them. So we need to put in more effort to urge them to better determine their destiny." Tuyishimire Florence
