Break time

As part of the reintegration programme for children who had been caught up in armed groups we also try and get kids back into school. In this secondary school, specializing in pedagogy, 5 children had been integrated two years ago. When we visited 4 where still at school and one had stopped. They had integrated back so well that the teachers made no difference between them and any other child and the children’s friends were in general unaware of their past. According to the headmaster 80% of children who graduate find a job, mainly as primary school teachers.
