The aim of this project is to better prepare the reintegration of returning refugees and internally displaced persons through the protection of their property, and so contribute to the promotion of peaceful coexistence between resident populations and returning refugees .
Since April 2015, the social and political situation in Burundi has been tense due to the elections of 2015. This has forced people to flee the country to neighboring countries and results in increase of internally displaced. To avoid problems of the past, economical assets and land ownership of refugees are assured to facilitate easier reintegration in the community of returning refugees. The project takes place in the communities of Kirundo and Makamba.
The project informs community leaders and stimulates them to acknowledge and protect property of refugees. An inventory of the goods of refugees is made and the property is protected. Volunteers and community leaders are trained in peaceful coexistence.
664 leaders of the UC and leaders of the communities Kirundo and Makamba are trained in peaceful coexistence and the peaceful resolution of conflicts. Within those two communities 13 secretaries will be formed to resolve conflicts peacefully.
