OUR HISTORY

Photo: Participants at the session in the GIKUYO zone where CRCs from two zones (Gikuyo and Kirundo Centre) were gathered.

Image

The session took place in two sites where two zones met per site to facilitate participation: Cewe and Kirundo rural zones met at ECOFO Munzenze on one hand and Kirundo center and Gikuyo zones at ECOFO Gikuyo on the other hand. The objective of the session was to give the necessary capacities to the members of the land recognition commissions on some key concepts of land management and to exchange on a better  ethics that should characterize a member of the commission and to propose sanctions in case of violation of the pre-established principles. During the session, participants understood their role, the values and morals that should guide their work and the different stages of land certification, but also, they were able to acquire a minimum of knowledge on the functionalities of the communal land service and this will allow them to better assist the population that needs this service so urgently. They also understood that this work is of a voluntary nature and requires a sacrifice from them that will germinate the spirit of consolidation of peace and reinforcement of rights in the families and grassroots communities.

Every year since 1911 around the world and for the past few years in Burundi, nations have been celebrating International Women's Day. This day is especially an occasion to celebrate the achievements of women in terms of economic, social and political advancement of given programs that help better serve humanity.

We probably would not speak about the achievements of women around the world as they are more than a lot and the context may escape us, but we can speak for Burundian women. In this article, women working with APDH tell us what they think about this year's international day dedicated to them, what it should stand for and how it should be fruitful and historic for humanity in the years to come.

We asked three important questions to three of our women and staff members and here is what they had to say about March8th .

In response to one of its strategic axes “Human rights education”, APDH organized a capacity building workshop for the benefit of 30 supervisors from school clubs housed in 15 schools (6 schools in the province of Ngozi and 9 schools of Muyinga province). The training focused on tolerance, prevention and peaceful management of conflicts, as part of a joint program with the AFJB (Association des Femmes Juristes du Burundi), in contribution to the main objective: "Support and promote the fulfillment of rights, prevention and peaceful resolution of conflicts for the benefit of vulnerable populations”.
The objective of the training is mainly to build the capacities of the mentors in order to better do their work of mentoring and teaching human rights in their respective schools. This training will help them to organize feedback sessions for the benefit of the students grouped within the clubs, around the targeted themes by the training.
For three consecutive days, the trainer insisted a lot on “tolerance” and the rest of the training was reserved for “peaceful conflict management.”
