Welcome to RECOVI, All together for Victims Assistance

The rights of Victims are every bit as important as those of alleged criminals are, and in recent decades, government agencies have strengthened services to crime victims. RECOVI’s research has supported efforts to guarantee the rights of victims and assist them in a variety of ways. Victims of crime may be any gender, age, race, or ethnicity. Victimization may happen to an individual, family, group, or community; and a crime itself may be to a person or property. The impact of crime on an individual victim, their loved ones, and their community depends on a variety of factors, but often crime victimization has significant emotional, psychological, physical, financial, and social consequences.

Who we are

RECOVI is a non-governmental and non-profit Organization registered in Burundi since November 2010, with a special consultative status of United Nations (ECOSOC). RECOVI aims to support victims of natural disasters and armed conflict violence and assist the under-served of rural vulnerable communities. It focusses on countering small arms and light weapons proliferation, drug abuse. And it also fosters community development via entrepreneurship actions and fighting against climate change disasters through local and regional initiatives of prevention and assistance for peace and security purposes with charity missions. .

Needy people are around us and victim is regarded in its entire meaning as a person(s) who, individually or collectively, has suffered harm, in particular injury to their physical or mental integrity, moral suffering, material loss, or serious violation of their fundamental rights, because of acts or omissions which may be recognized or not by national criminal law in human rights standards.

In accordance with this regard, we advocates for human rights, freedom of speech to harmed and harassed persons from the low age till the old aged people based on rate of victimization. Orphans, street children, people with disability, youth and women are more considered for sustainable development assistance.
