Reintegration training for ex-combatants
More than two dozen ex-combatants from the Sudanese Armed Forces participated in El Fasher, North Darfur, in a training aimed at their social and economic reintegration. The three-day exercise, which concluded today, was conducted by the African Charitable Society for Motherhood and Child Care, a NGO contracted by the North Sudan Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) Commission.

At the close, the beneficiaries received toolkits to assist them in starting different types of businesses, including shoe-making, auto repair, kitchen utensil rental, varied grocery items for small shops, and spare parts for repairing water pumps, among others.
