We are thrilled to announce our first Grantee in Africa! Go Girl Africa in Uganda has developed a unique program to “strengthen young people’s capacity in peace building”. The goal is to explore the meaning of key concepts such as peace, conflict and violence among young people and the feelings associated with these concepts. “Peace Dialogues” will enable young people to explore the various facets of peace through creative activities and group discussions. These dialogues are also a space for creating informal opportunities for personal reflection, critical thinking and public discussions and will provide a networking opportunity for young people to stimulate long-term dialogues for better goodwill and friendships. They will be led by Volunteers for Peace who are youth leaders and activists trained in promoting peace building and who aspire to become change agents in their communities!
