Settlements

 

The UNHCR/WTU partnership programme targets the PoCs of school going age namely the 3-5 year olds accessing the Early learning childhood centers ( ECDs), the 6-13 year olds accessing primary education, the 12 -17 year olds accessing the lower secondary education , 17-19 year olds accessing higher education and the 17-24 year olds accessing vocational skills training. The partnership also provides education to nationals who live within the settlements and surrounding  areas.

Nakivale:  There are about 15,000 nationals, some of whom live within the settlement, but mostly in the periphery of the settlement.  The population in Nakivale is heterogeneous with many cultures and groups from different nationalities.  The settlement now accommodates 62,000 persons of concern.  Despite sustained activities to promote voluntary repatriation, very few Rwandans are willing to return home.

Kyaka II:  the settlement was established in 1983 to settle over 10,000 Rwandan refugees of Tutsi ethnicity who lived with nationals.  Between 1992 and 1996, the settlement received over 12,800 refugees (mostly Congolese nationals).  Between 1997 and 1998, 8,000 refugees voluntarily repatriated to the DRC.  Due to continued ethnic clashes and the volatile security situation in the Eastern Part of the DRC, over 8,000 new arrivals were settled in Kyaka II.  Some of the refugees are from Burundi, Somalia, Sudan, CAR and Malawi.  The population statistics today indicate that the settlement hosts 16,192 persons.

Oruchinga:  the settlement was established in 1959 to receive Rwandese Tutsi refugees.  In October 1994, another war broke out in Rwanda and refugees of Hutu origin fled to Uganda after the Rwandan Government was taken over by Tutsi.  In 1998, Oruchinga refugee settlement was closed to new refugee arrivals.  Presently there are 4,888 Refugees from Rwanda, Congo and Burundi.
