Overview

Recovering from years of civil war, Burundians are hopeful for peace after two democratic elections. With hundreds of thousands returning home after the conflict, the International Rescue Committee encourages stability by protecting and reunifying families as they resettle and by providing them with the supplies and skills they need to move forward.

How we help
  • The IRC supports Burundian refugees returning from camps in Tanzania as they reintegrate into their communities.
  • We provide life skills and job training for young people to help them succeed and become independent.
  • The IRC reunites separated children with their families and helps them transition back to school and family life.
  • We encourage women’s economic and social empowerment and improve services for survivors of sexual violence.
  • The IRC promotes democratic local governance to address local problems effectively.
