Our Projects 

  1. Schools for Peace  empowers students, teachers and school administration to prevent and manage schools related violence. We also leverage the power of sports, music and art to mobilize and sensitize young people on violence, drug abuse and life skills. Our curriculum cover self esteem, conflict management and nonviolence.                                                                                                                                                  

  2. Entrepreneurship for Peace promoted entrepreneurship as a positive alternative to violence through equipping out of school youth with vocational and business skills to increase their employ-ability and start businesses so as to positively contribute to their community transformation.                                                                                                                                                                                                            

  3. Communities for peace is focused on raising awareness through community dialogues, radio talk shows and advocacy campaigns on issues of violence, rights of children and gender parity, we strongly believe knowledge is power and catalyst to positive behavioral and social change.
