We are delighted to kick-off a project, financed by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF), supporting voluntary returnees in their reintegration in Somalia and Somaliland.

IRARA will be providing reintegration assistance for nationals of Somalia and Somaliland who wish to return home after having resided in Germany for at least three consecutive months. The experienced IRARA counsellors will work to identify the individual needs of the returnees and work with them to develop a tailor-made plan for their reintegration activities. These activities are provided ‘in-kind’ and can include (but are not limited to):

  • Meet and greet and needs-based support at the airport
  • Onward travel
  • Temporary accommodation
  • Assistance in accessing adult education / training
  • Advisory support and counselling services
  • Assistance in setting up a small business.
