A three-person World ORT IC team spent nearly two months in Burundi in 2007 to interview beneficiaries, bureaucrats and aid workers. The program is available to more than 50,000 ex-combatants. The World ORT IC team drafted a comprehensive report, detailing the strengths and weaknesses of the program with a view towards helping the Government of Burundi to enhance the reintegration program's benefits.
Counterparts participated in courses in technical subjects and teaching methods to prepare them for staffing the Public Works Section upon project completion. ORT responsibilities included the procurement of equipment and the selection of trainees. From 1987 to 1988 ORT implemented training seminars for newly recruited civil engineers.
