Burundi is facing a socio-political crisis that affects its economy. The vast majority of its population lives below the poverty line. Children are the most affected and are confronted to all sorts of violence. We are working with the Ministry of Justice to implement a restorative justice, which reintegrates children in conflict with the law into the society while guaranteeing their rights. We reinforce and support the actors in the communal system to establish a child protection framework which supports good existing cultural practices. .
