Community Initiative Justice Support
A Peacebuilding Institute Affiliate
Community participants of twenty to thirty people are invited to participate in workshops geared towards building sustainable peace. The workshops include but are not limited to Conflict Transformation, Dialogue, Trauma Healing, Peace building Strategies, and Nonviolent Communication. Participants in the programs are women, youth, men's civic groups, church groups, or any group that is already formed in a local community. The groups use role plays on mediation, drama, dance, songs and focus group discussions. Facilitation in needs assessment, capacity building, storytelling, and public forums are also offered.
The team members travel to places working with local communities that want to participate in these peacebuilding efforts. The team is looking to expand to other countries in Africa. The initial visit is approximately for thirty days where the team works with the community leaders to facilitate workshops around the needs of the community. There are follow-up visits at least once a year to re-assess, revise, and facilitate the community implementation plans.
