Projected Output

Promotion of Self Reliance among refugee men and women by providing them with professional qualification geared towards future gainful employment.

Description

Through UNHCR/DAFI REDESO has successfully supported eligible refugee students through DAFI (Albert Einstein German Refugee Academic Initiative) scholarship programme. The strategic objective for this important support is to contribute to the promotion of self reliance of refugee men and women by providing them with professional qualification geared towards future gainful employment which would encourage the development of qualified human resource for the future reconstruction of refugees’ home countries upon repatriation, and therefore making the repatriation more process sustainable and supporting greater peace and stability in the region.

Tertiary education on the other hand, may facilitate local integration and contribute to the development of the refugee community and the host country. Furthermore, this project will strive to offer an opportunity to ex DAFI students and other qualified graduates to pursue Masters Degree which is not easy to access in the countries of origin but also difficult to be afforded by Burundians undergoing naturalization process.

Currently this programme benefits 112 students at 16 different institutions in Tanzania. Scholars are undertaking courses at Diploma, first digree and Masters degree levels.
