Demobilization, Disarmament, and Reintegration

Grants that address the demobilization, disarmament, and reintegration into their communities of those that fought in conflict, including child soldiers. Demobilizing, disarming, and reintegrating those partaking in violence is a crucial step in ending violence, reducing the risk of a re-escalation of hostilities and building a lasting peace.
