Mi-PAREC is composed of members animated by a sacrificial spirit and volunteerism, who focus on social aspects in order to help the marginalized, such as displaced persons, repatriates, demobilized combatants, people affected by the Burundian civil war, people affected by sickness such as HIV/Aids, the poor, etc.

Mi-PAREC helps in the creation and support of local peace initiatives and community rebuilding through peace committees, solidarity groups called « Self Help Groups » and other groups or clubs. It offers teaching through seminars and workshops in which community representatives, administrative and political authorities, military, and representatives of civil society participate in order to discuss their role in the construction of the country and support sustainable peace and development.
