Help us to finance the implementation of a psychological support in Rwanda


The project

21 years after the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, children of Rwanda that had to face horrors became now adults. Unfortunately a major part of those people have lost most of their family members and a lot of adults found themselves abandon in streets.




« Say Yes to life in Rwanda ! » is a project that aims to develop a psychological support for numerous people living and suffering in Rwanda. The ‘form’ of this psychological support is based on a psychotherapeutic school called « Logotherapy ».

Logotherapy is a school of psychotherapy focusing on meaning and values.


Founded by Viktor Fankl, neurologist, psychiatrist and philosopher, logotherapy is considered as a ‘brief therapeutic process’. Viktor Frankl was Honoris Causa Doctor in around 30 universities around the world.

The approach of the Logotherapy is based on 2 pillars: Freedom and responsibility, whatever the person environment.



Eva Roettgers, a German woman doctor spent around 30 years of her life in Rwanda.

Today, her commitment helped to train 2 rwandan people in Logotherapy : Christophe et Edouard.




Now, the Professional French Association of Logotherapeuts is helping « The Rwandan Forum of Logotherapy » in its growth and evolution.

The Rwandan Forum of Logotherapy has been created in 2015.


In that purpose of supporting this growth, the project aims at realising in November 2015 :

- 3 congress on Logotherapy in Rwanda,

- Logotherapy book publishing in local language (Kinyarwanda),




Why fund it?

The money raised will serve as following :


1- Coming of around 10 French experts in Logotherapy (accreditated logotherapeutists) and 'staff' in Rwanda (flight tickets Paris - Kigali),

2- Logotherapeutic book publishing (1000 books) of Viktor Frankl "Men search for Meaning" translated in "Kinyarwanda" (one of the official language of Rwanda).

3- Logistics organisation and cars travelling for congressists and 'staff' in major cities of Rwanda : Kigali, Butare et Ruhengeri.


All additionnal money above the target of 10 000 € will be totally allocaed to "the Rwandan Forum of Logotherapeutists" to support local information, training or other services in Logotherapy.

Bonjour. Je ne connais pas la logo thérapie mais je suis convaincu que la parole permet de partager et d'alléger les blessures de chacun. J'avais lu les livres de M Jean Hatzfeld. Participer à votre projet après avoir lu ces livres, me permet de passer à un rôle plus actif, à mon niveau. Je vous souhaite de mener votre projet à terme. Cordialement. Mathieu
