Management of Community Conflict in the Southern Province of Rwanda
The “Management for Community Conflicts in the Southern Province of Rwanda (MCC)” project, implemented by IBUKA and supported by GIZ/ZFD, has been running in the districts of Huye, Gisagara and Nyaruguru since September 2011. During that time, 90 community volunteers known as Animateur Psychosocial (APS) have been trained in understanding trauma and conflict and basic methods of intervention. There have also been regular supervision sessions where the APS work with a psychologist on the challenges they encounter through their voluntary commitment. The APS have used the knowledge and support of the project to help them intervene on behalf of their communities in trauma and conflict cases.
