The programme examines social, cultural & individual understanding of peacebuilding process to improve youth & adults perception on how to transform conflicts without resorting to violence. It further, addresses the challenges of violent conflicts, discrimination and the knowledge gaps in the field of peace and conflict transformation.
Peace-building: focuses on activities aiming at promoting a culture of peace by reducing and/or ending violent conflicts and averting the outbreak of violence. Preventing Violent Extremism: focus on generic prevention; create initiatives aiming at identifying youth influencing factors & behaviors, reduce risks & strengthen protective measures.
Why do it
Wherever people with different interests, needs, culture, belief, etc. work and/or live together, there is always the potential for conflicts or differences. If not transformed, might escalate into violence. Our training courses prepare youth to adopting peacebuilding methods involving activities that aim to reduce tension & prevent violence.
How it works
The results produced by the program are used by the Editorial to produce learning and training modules that respond to youth's and adults learning needs. We aim at developing learning approaches to skills about peace-building in contexts of conflicts, and post-conflict through learning activities, processes, theories, & perspectives about conflict resolution, violence prevention and reconciliation.
To achieve what
The courses are Problem-solving-oriented and focus on generating new ideas, methods and solutions towards the challenges to peace- building and counter violent extremism. Thus, participants become familiar with peace-building activities through non-formal education and how to apply that in practice; developing sustainable ventures.
