WHAT DO WE WANT TO CHANGE?
The presence of various armed groups and drug undergoes the population of the affected areas to a permanent humanitarian crisisHigh levels of poverty, forced abandonment of their communities for protection and security, family structure, economic vulnerability and violence against women.
The work of public institutions and integration to provide shelter to the displaced on both sides of the border population creates social tensions, rejection and exclusion in host communities.
The public institutions sometimes do not have access to the affected population, Which does not know the legal and institutional frameworks for protection.
WE ARE WORKING ON:
The work is developed from three perspectives: Ensure the safety, dignity and humanitarian assistance to the affected population.
Therefore it supports communities through workshops training so that they know the legal framework, forming leaders and organized groups (especially women and craftsmen) that engage and interact with the institutions. In parallel, working with institutions (public, private and international) to bring closer them to the communities, providing access to and contact with the displaced population so that they can fulfil their responsibilities. In addition, institutional presence is an element of protection for the communities.
Actions are carried out to increase the autonomy of people giving support for the development of productive projects, providing safe neighborhoods with community infrastructure and housing that have hygienic and comfortable sanitation and access to drinking water.
