What We Do


Socio-economic reintegration is an essential component of post-conflict recovery, focusing on the social, economic, and psychological aspects of individuals and communities who have been affected by conflict.


Socio-economic reintegration is the multifaceted process of reintegrating individuals and communities affected by conflict, disaster, or displacement into the social, economic, and psychological fabric of society. It encompasses the restoration of livelihoods, access to education and healthcare, psychosocial support, community engagement, and the reestablishment of social networks. Successful socio-economic reintegration promotes sustainable peace, economic recovery, and the restoration of social cohesion in post-conflict or post-disaster settings.


 GoalPrime Organisation Nigeria (GPON) views Socio-economic reintegration in the context of the northeast post-conflict situation as the reintegration of ex-combatants, displaced populations, and vulnerable groups into the social and economic fabric of society.


Over the years GPON have employed various approaches and strategies to address socio-economic reintegration in post-conflict and post-disaster settings in the northeast of Nigeria, especially in the BAY states. These approaches have facilitated the successful reintegration of individuals and communities affected by conflict, displacement, or humanitarian crises into the economic, social, and psychological fabric of society.


Underlisted are specific strategies GPON and several overarching principles guiding GPON's efforts in socio-economic reintegration.


Inclusivity and Participation. GPON places a strong emphasis on involving affected communities and individuals in the design and implementation of reintegration programs. This participatory approach ensures that the solutions are contextually relevant and that the voices and needs of the people are heard.


Holistic Approach. GPON recognizes that socio-economic reintegration is a multifaceted process. It addresses livelihoods, education, healthcare, psychosocial support, and community engagement to foster a comprehensive approach that goes beyond economic aspects.


Gender Mainstreaming. Gender considerations are central to GPON strategies in socio-economic reintegration. These strategies ensure that the unique needs and experiences of women, men, girls, and boys are taken into account in program design, implementation, and evaluation.


Rule of Law and Justice. Establishing the rule of law and ensuring access to justice are fundamental to GPON in creating an environment where socio-economic reintegration can take place. This includes addressing human rights abuses and ensuring accountability.


Community-Based Initiatives. GPON encourages community-based approaches, where local communities play a significant role in driving reintegration efforts. These initiatives are often essential for building social cohesion and trust.


Capacity Building. GPON focuses on strengthening the capacities of local institutions, government agencies, and civil society organizations to lead and sustain reintegration efforts over the long term.


Economic Recovery and Livelihoods. Facilitating economic recovery and income-generating opportunities is a critical aspect of GPON strategies. This can include vocational training, job placement, microfinance programs, and support for small and medium-sized enterprises.


Education and Healthcare. Access to quality education and healthcare services is essential for reintegration. GPON works to rebuild and improve education and healthcare systems in affected areas of northeastern Nigeria.


Psychosocial Support. Recognizing the psychological trauma experienced by many individuals affected by conflict or disasters in northeastern Nigeria, GPON provides psychosocial support services to address trauma, stress, and mental health issues.


Monitoring and Evaluation. GPON continually monitors and evaluates the effectiveness of reintegration programs, making adjustments as necessary to ensure that they meet their objectives.


Coordination and Collaboration. Collaboration and coordination among GPON agencies, government bodies, local organizations, and international partners are central to the success of reintegration efforts. This prevents duplication of efforts and ensures a unified approach.


Conflict Prevention. In addition to post-conflict reintegration, GPON emphasizes conflict prevention to address the root causes of conflict and reduce the risk of recurrence.
