Project ID:00113468Description:PBF/IRF-279: Youth leading the
Peacebuilding Fund
Start Date *: 17 Dec 2018
PBF Immediate Response
End Date*: 31 Dec 2020
Country: Burundi Project Status: Operationally Closed
  Participating Organization:   CORDAID - Catholic Organisation for Reli

The proposed project brings together Cordaid, a leading international CSO, with established local CSOs REJA and YELI-Burundi, to invest in the leadership capacities of young leaders in 12 communes of the 6 provinces, and catalyze them to collect evidence on safety issues in their communities and collaborate with community members to develop an array of targeted peacebuilding initiatives in response. Building on the frameworks provided by UNSCRs 2250 and 1325, the project will engage young female and male leaders, empowering them to work together as allies to contribute to everyday safety and peace in their communities, with specific attention to the everyday safety of women; in Burundi, this is innovative, as most gendered interventions focus exclusively on women. It is also catalytic, in that it associates young people with peace and security processes from which they are most often excluded, and increases the prospects of their future inclusion. Finally, the project is innovative (and risk-tolerant) insofar as targeted peacebuilding initiatives will be diverse, context-specific and experimental, with some likely to fail while many others will present opportunities for upscaling and replication elsewhere in Burundi.
