Although violence in Burundi has subsided, the majority of the survivors still suffer from psychological trauma, including depression, poor self-esteem and anxiety. To manage these negative effects, the Centre d'Encadrement et de Développement des Anciens Combattants (Training Centre for Development of Ex-Combatants) initiated a peer-support program to help ex-combatants solve their challenges as a group. James Madison University’s Center for International Stabilization and Recovery and Action on Armed Violence worked with CEDAC on this peer-support program. The program is funded jointly by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and AOAV.
