Programs & projects
Peace and Development Academy
In order to insure a more long term and the sustainability of ARBI’s engagement, Kivu Peace and Development Academy remains our daily dream. The center will aim at equipping participants from different corners of DRC and other nations on pre-mentioned aspects under ARBI vision and mission. These after completing the courses will be commissioned to go back to serve in their respective areas according their contexts and languages. Apart the role of equipping to serve, ARBI will play as well the monitoring and evaluation in order to safeguard and insure the quality of services provided.
In this perspective, in order to become more effective ARBI will link with possible national and international centers and institutions so that it benefit from their expertise.
