The Karambenor project will support the returnees affected by the conflict to rebuild their lives and improve the social and economic development of the community.
Training in empowerment and individual rights will be provided to the displaced persons within the communities of Álamos and Dos de Juni, Colombia.
The purpose of this project is to enhance the sustainable livelihoods of the returnees in the Sindian-Sous Prefecture (Region of Ziguinchor, Senegal) and of their communities.
The CARA project is a one year project that targets villages in the Sindian-Sous prefecture and focuses on rebuilding rural livelihoods. CARA will support refugees to return, resettle and rebuild their lives in this conflict-affected region of Casamance through combining improved, appropriate and sustainable farming practice and income generating activities.
Since 1982, there has been an ongoing conflict in Casamance, located in southern Senegal. It is estimated that over 5,000 people have been killed, and over 60,000 people have been internally displaced, with about 15,000 people seeking refuge in The Gambia and Guinea Bissau.
