The walk will take place in affected nations like Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania, India, the United States, the United Kingdom, Belgium, and Rwanda. Initiated in 2009 by members of Peace and Love Proclaimers (PLP), Walk to Remember is a yearly event designed to empower the youth of Rwanda and around the world to fight against genocide. As usual, this year’s genocide walk will characterize candle lighting as a sign of mourning.
