For the Strengthening Survivorship in Rwanda program, which will also extend to survivors in Uganda, and Burundi.
The Center for International Stabilization and Recovery will continue to run the Survivor Corps-developed project which helps genocide survivors and those who participated in the crimes recover from trauma and rejoin their communities through a proven peer support methodology. The project also brings former enemies together to work for a common cause: making Rwandan buildings and services accessible to those with disabilities.
Survivor Corps (formerly Landmine Survivors Network) is a global network of people helping one another overcome the effects of war and violence. Landmine Survivors Network was founded in 1997, expanding considerably over the years to operate programs for survivors around the world, including 43 of the 87 most mine-affected countries and regions of the world.
The Center for International Stabilization and Recovery is a public policy center at James Madison University that manages information, conducts training, holds conferences and workshops, and performs research relevant to humanitarian mine clearance, victim assistance, mine risk reduction and other explosive remnants of war. CISR was chosen by Survivor Corps to run its peer support programs in Africa.
