The Mozambican Force for Crime Investigation and Social Reintegration (FOMICRES)

The Mozambican Force for Crime Investigation and Social Reintegration (FOMICRES) was founded after the civil war in Mozambique by a group of former child soldiers.

Its members were instrumental in the reintegration of over 1000 child soldiers into their communities, and in developing civic education programmes through which it collected and destroyed over 1000000 small arms.

Its “Non killing is Possible” programme was crucial to community reconciliation and reintegration across Mozambique. FOMICRES was a co-founder and is technical adviser to Mozambique’s National Commission on small arms, headed by the Home Affairs Minister, and was the main civil society representative in lobbying on revising legislation on small arms and light weapons.
