Bangwe et Dialogue Burundi works to build and sustain relationships that contribute to peace education, conflict resolution and the fight against gender-based violence.
During the war, the organisation hosted four symposiums gathering women from Burundi, Rwanda and DR Congo to discuss the experiences and role of women in the peacebuilding process.
In the field, Bangwe et Dialogue has facilitated peace themed arts competitions in secondary schools, provided assistance to vulnerable women in its areas of focus, and helped vulnerable groups of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), widows, and members of the Batwa people to begin income-generating activities.
Bangwe et Dialogue Burundi is a branch of Bangwe et Dialogue created in 1988 under the initiative of African women living in Geneva.
