Training on Peer Support
This Monday, March 5, 2010, CEDAC in collaboration with Survivor Corps has begun a program of training in the approach of peer support to women ex-combatants, leaders of community groups of Communes Kanyosha, Isale, and Mutimbuzi Kabezi.
These four municipalities were chosen by the fact that they contain the majority of ex-combatants of the last province that has experienced war, Bujumbura Rural
This approach innovated by Survivor Corps is to help survivors overcome the barriers related to traumatic experiences they have experienced because of the war.
The introductory word has been uttered by Mr Pierre Claver Nsengiyumva, Country Director of Survivor Corps in Burundi, who expressed the objective of training and expectations of Survivor Corps after training.
The Chairman of CEDAC, Eric Niragira hope that this training is a beginning of a true reconciliation based on the development especially that we are in a post conflict phase in which efforts of everyone are needed.
This training will last three days begin in a unique atmosphere.
