Dire oui à la Vie ! Logothérapie au Rwanda

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.
