Culture and Etiquette

Conversations don't have a formal end. When you're finished talking to a loved one, the conversation is put on hold, and you're expected to resume when you both have time.

Space is determined by your relationship. Friends can be close and engage in public displays of affection. Colleagues and people of respect should not be touched.

The majority of Rwandans are Protestant or Catholic. There is a small Muslim population, followed by the minority who still practice Indigenous religions.

Rwanda is a socially changing country. The Rwanda Genocide took place in 1994; in the grand scheme of things, twenty-eight years ago is still incredibly fresh in national history. There are reforms taking place within the legal system and the church.
