[L'Eglise Episcopal au Rwanda - Rwanda] The new Provincial Secretary for the Episcopal Church of Rwanda, the Rev. Emmanuel Gatera, has vowed to work around the clock to help the church achieve the Millennium Development Goals in pursuit of its bid to attain holistic development.

In his first address to the press, he noted that educational gates would be opened for the church's flock to fight illiteracy in society. He said that evangelization would be promoted so as to help heal the wounds which Rwandan society sustained during the 1994 Genocide.

He further pointed out that poverty reduction strategies would be introduced across the church's Dioceses to fight poverty within the community. He also appealed to Rwandans to love one another for the sake of building peace in the region.

Rwanda was left in shackles during 1994 when over one million innocent people were murdered in cold blood.
