kuri website yacu kandi yanyu!

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to ARCT- RUHUKA web site. ARCT-RUHUKA is a national unique and dynamic organization of professional counselors in Rwanda.

Since its inception in 1998, ARCT – Ruhuka elaborated various programs that focus on empowering communities through healing for psychosocial reintegration

ARCT RUHUKA  has made tremendous achievements in offering psychological support to the Rwandan population. Today, we are proud of our contributions towards the achievements made so far in the area of psychosocial healing, SGBV, HIV, family conflicts resolution,  reintegration, and social cohesion, unity, and reconciliation among the Rwandan population.

It is evident that the trained Counselors and Community Psychosocial Workers are using their skills and technical knowledge to offer psychological services. ARCT RUHUKA offers capacity building to institutions by offering training, and offer psychosocial support to individuals, couples, and groups of people, together with research and documentation.

ARCT-RUHUKA offers stress management services that aim at preventing burnout and maintaining professional standards, ARCT-RUHUKA offers also Care for caregivers services through clinical supervision support and counselor’s care to the professional counselors and Community Psychosocial Workers.

ARCT-RUHUKA addresses trauma-related to distressing personal experiences, couple and family conflicts, gender and sexual violence /rape, stress management, grief, anxiety, depression, and HIV/AIDs among others.

It should be noted that Psychological Trauma does not segregate, it has no limits or borders, it knows no tribe, religion, race, or color and anyone may be a candidate at any time depending on the prevailing situation. It is therefore important to join efforts in fighting any form of human rights violations, genocide, conflicts, wars, disasters, and other causes of trauma and psychological problems to promote sustainable peace and development.

We hope our website will help you know more about what ARCT-RUHUKA does and will be an efficient and effective way of sharing and exchange of information.

We thank you again for visiting our website!

ARCT- Ruhuka is National Organization of professional Trauma Counselors.
