Peace Education


PEACE EDUCATION

With many dimensions of conflict emerging amidst us always, there is need to plant seeds of non-violence and reconciliation in schools. Education programs are very vital for the region in order to achieve peace and strengthen the society. PDF-Africa has its core component, peace education both in formal institutions of learning through established structures like school clubs/forums and in informal sub-county structures to the District Reconciliation & Peace Teams (DRPT).

One special target group in the informal setting is the LRA Youth Returnees. The priority is to have a community based reintegration package consisting of three main milestones:

 

(1)  Psychotherapy

 

(2)  Non-violence training & orientation

 

(3)  Community-based vocational skills training and practice
