Returned IDPs are supporting themselves by constructing temporary shelters (rokubas) in order to accommodate the elderly, children, women and people living with disability considering their high level of vulnerabilities. Community members and IDP returnees are working closely together to assist the most crisis affected populations to cope up with resettlement in their place of origin. However, this needs to be supported by humanitarian actors due to the scarce resources and the lack of a local market.

As self-supporting initiatives, IDP returnees currently do engage in farming, collecting mango and orange fruits, wild fruits for sell, making tea and bread for sell, collecting honey and gums for sell, making charcoals and doing causal labor, such as carpentry and masonry as means of earning living.
