La maison se situe toutefois au milieu du compound, et proche des bureaux, ce qui peut en semaine affecter l’intimité et empêcher de faire de réelles « coupures » ; mais des aménagements sont installés pour réduire ce sentiment. Les règles y sont assez strictes en termes de mouvement, et les opportunités de sortie relativement limitées (à la visite des autres ONG, au camp de la MINUSCA ayant un petit supermarché, un restaurant et offrant des opportunités sportives). Les expatriés basés à Kaga-Bandoro doivent comprendre et accepter que le risque de braquage, sur base ou sur les axes, est élevé, et que la probabilité d’en être victime est forte. Enfin, du fait de l’instabilité de la zone, le risque de devoir se confiner ou évacuer de Kaga-Bandoro reste présent, chose à laquelle les expatriés doivent également être préparés.
