Former combatants who have been away from their communities for many years can face great difficulties when making the transition from conflict to peace. In Rwanda, ex-combatants often returning from the DRC must overcome their own fears and the communities’ mistrust in their bid to rejoin civilian life. To facilitate their reintegration and help them start a new life, the Rwanda Demobilization and Reintegration Commission provides these ex-combatants with socio-economic support in the form of small grants, formal education, skills training, and national reconciliation and unity activities.
