Capacitar: A Brief History

Brief History

Capacitar began in Rwanda in June 2006 when Sr.Antoinette Gasibirege and Sr Dr Genevieve W. MD invited Patricia Mathes Cane, Ph.D., founder/director of Capacitar International. Dr Patricia Cane gave a five days’ workshop to the staff involved in the care of persons living with HIV.

By January 2008, fifty seven people from all five provinces of Rwanda had participated in workshops on Healing and Transformation. These workshops were organized by Capacitar Rwanda with the support of Trocaire and Conrland Hilton Fund For Sisters.

Doctors, psychologists, trauma counselors, nurses, social workers, teachers who took the training have integrated Capacitar’s practices into their organization and/or their professional work. They are now part of Capacitar’s network and meet regularly to share experience.
