These Militia groups bring about the destabilization and reverse the gains already by the Federal Government of Somalia therefore undermine democracy and breeds lawlessness.
In response to this, READO (with support from IOM) has been engaging in a demobilization and reintegration program for the youth in Baidoa in 2015 through the business skills and entrepreneurship training. READO is consolidating its efforts through a cost extension and reaching more youth (especially women) who are at risk or had previously engaged in militia groups and wish to quit the unlawful practice. This is done not only through entrepreneurship training but also issuing the youth start up grants to start their own business ventures and earn income.
READO is registered as an NGO with the Ministry of Interior and National Security, Mogadishu- Somalia Ref No MINS/0077/2016.
