In Burundi, PLAY International and the UNDP work hand in hand to bring communities together




As part of a new partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), PLAY International will work with 11 000 young kids in the integrated rural villages of Burundi. The goal of this project is to support the integration of the repatriated population, often deported in refugee camps which are now closed in Tanzania.


The project financed by the UNDP, will set up educative activities within these districts, in order to improve the relations between different populations and favour their integration among the neighbouring communities.



Project for long term development


Through the development of the Playdagogy programme and the construction of areas dedicated to sport activities. The NGO will participate in children’s education and raise awareness within the different communities about sensitive issues such as social inclusion.

The objective is to make the action durable since the last six months of the project are devoted to the training of young educators. As a result, they will be able to manage the activities themselves.



An action in favour of the repatriate populations of Tanzania


Burundi counts today approximately 800 000 Burundian sent away from closed refugee camps in Tanzania. This population is now back in Burundi and live in integrated rural villages. These villages are in poor conditions. Furthermore, there are tensions between neighbouring communities. They are having difficulties accepting the return of such a huge amount of people.
