The European Return and Reintegration Network is an initiative of 16 European states that helps to ensure that people on the move can return home in a dignified and humane manner. ERRIN is working with local organisations on the ground in 40 countries, offering comprehensive assistance for returning migrants. Following the initial aid provided right upon arrival, the reintegration support may involve support for housing, medical treatment, vocational training and educational needs, or setting up a business.

About Caritas

The reintegration assistance on the ground is provided by Caritas Niger through Caritas International Belgium (CIB) and the ERSO Network. CIB is a NGO active
in reintegration support since 2007. CIB works in close cooperation with partners in Europe, and large parts of Africa, Asia and Latin America. Caritas International is member of ERSO (European Reintegration Support Organisations). ERSO is a network of non-governmental organisations involved in return counselling and reintegration support. The objective of ERSO is to exchange information, collect expertise and develop best practices in the field of return and reintegration.
