Involving young people in peace building can give them hope. If the enemy of hope is despair, hope is an important pillar upon which to build sustainable peace.
There is enormous progressive activism and, more often than not, success at the grassroots level- we must empower youth to be agents of change at the local level.
Bridges of reconciliation cannot be built by violence. We are committed to promoting the pursuit of transforming conflict through non-violence.
Responding to the ebb and flow of social conflicts as a life giving opportunity for creating constructive change processes that reduce violence, increase justice, and respond to real life problems.
– Nelson Mandela
