This project will be carried out in consortium with ACF, DRC and IMPACT initiatives, in Bangui in the 3rd arrondissement and Bimbo district. It will aim to: "Support and sustain the dynamics of return to Bangui through appropriate and strengthened social, economic and protection mechanisms". This objective will be achieved through the achievement of three objectives:

  1. Men, women and children in returning neighbourhoods have access to protection services and mechanisms to support their psychological resilience (DRC lead)
  2. Governmental and local authorities as well as civil society organizations are actively involved in the recovery process and community stabilization.
  3. Socio-economic recovery dynamics and social cohesion between host, displaced and returned populations are restored (ACTED and DRC lead):
  • ACTED and DRC aim to increase the purchasing power of vulnerable households while improving social cohesion links and opportunities in return areas in Bangui and Bimbo. This objective will be achieved through the organization of High Manpower Intensity Works (THIMO) and the support to Income Generating Activities (IGA) and Resilience Funds (2,000 IGAs including 75% for ACTED). The IGAs/Resilience Funds will largely be carried out through 4 local NGOs that will have been identified during the evaluation during the preliminary phase of the project.
  • The THIMO (2 800 beneficiaries including 75% for ACTED) will be carried out in coordination with the Bangui City Council. To increase household livelihoods in the return areas, restore the operational capacity of economic and social infrastructure and strengthen social cohesion, ACTED and Bangui City Council will rehabilitate economic and social infrastructure.
