The Aegis Trust was founded in the 2000 by brothers Dr James and Dr Stephen Smith, who are also the founders of the UK’s first Holocaust Memorial and Education Centre. Aegis was created in response to the genocide crises that took place during the 1990s in Rwanda, Bosnia and Kosovo.
Aegis was established to apply lessons learnt from previous genocides and warn the world of the threat of genocide. It fights against genocide by building the political will to take preventive action against mass atrocities. In Rwanda, Aegis is based in the capital Kigali and works across the country.Visit Website
