Rema is a Christian NGO, which identifies itself with refugees and other disadvantaged people from/in Burundi. They try to sensitise and mobilise members of the community and especially leaders about the ills harming the community, work with the community to eradicate those ills.
Rema provides social support to meet material needs. They also run Community Based Education on HIV/AIDS among refugees in Tanzania and among returnees and other disadvantaged people in Burundi. We have also started an Orphan Care Training Program for the year 2006 both in Nairobi and in the Tanzanian camps.
Rema has been trying to prepare refugees for repatriation, help them talk over difficult issues with those in Burundi as part of peace building, forgiveness and reconciliation, reconstruction and trauma healing.
