Restoring Peace: Assisting Children Affected by Armed Conflict in Africa
Restoring Peace is a group of four projects to support the rights and needs of young people in Angola, Burundi and Uganda. Each project was implemented in partnership with a local organization in the host country. The projects are:
- Youth Ambassadors for Peace and Citizenship (JEPC) project in Angola, in partnership with Development Workshop Angola.
- Project to Support the Social and Economic Reintegration of Young Women and Girls Affected by Conflict and Victims of Violence in Burundi, in partnership with a consortium of local partners under the leadership of ACORD Burundi.
- Mother-Daughter Project in northern Uganda, in partnership with World Vision Uganda and a committee of stakeholder organizations.
- Inter-country Project. The purpose of the Inter-Country Project was to strengthen the above three projects through research, learning and collaboration opportunities between the three projects in Angola, Burundi and Uganda. The Inter-Country Project was based in Kenya and coordinated by ACORD.
Restoring Peace was funded by the Canadian International Development Agency, under the Canada Fund for Africa. The Canada Fund for Africa was eliminated as of March 31, 2008. At present, the Restoring Peace projects are on hold until we are able to find new source of funding.
