Promotion of peaceful co-existence
Peace building and conflict resolution are essential interventions to communities emerging out of conflict and civil strife. Our approach is built on the belief that conflict resolution and peace building begins in the mind.
An individual has to make peace with him/herself before they can meaningfully make peace with those around them. Therefore, our interventions focus on assuaging any feelings of acrimony, vengeance and mistrust among warring factions and individuals in the aftermath of conflict and civil strife.
We promote peaceful conflict resolution methods and facilitate community driven systems where individuals can receive psychosocial support.This approach therefore relies on traditional justice systems and involves working closely with traditional leaders and councils of elders, promoting their role in peace building.
Our role is to simply facilitate a process of dialogue and community discussion forums where people come together to identify and discuss potential conflict trigger points. Using the Hero Book tool kit, we have involved young people in peace building activities by facilitating young people to share their stories of resilience and courage amidst adversity with peers in schools and communities.
