It is a farming community inhabited mainly by Hutu people.[2] Pauline Nyiramasuhuko was born in Ndora in 1946.[3] Callixte Kalimanzira, head of the Ministry of Interior and Communal Development, met in Ndora on June 7, 1994 and warned the people that the Rwandan Patriotic Front ([RPF) were using small children who should also become targets.[4]There is said to be an iron-smelting furnace in Ndora.[5][6]A number of Hutu women in the village were widowed during the Rwandan Genocide.[2]
