Shalom, Educating for Peace

www.shalomeducatingforpeace.org
This project seeks equip youth leaders in training youth in peace principles. Shalom has developed a training manual to assist these leaders in this task. The aim is to reach 250 youth leaders in 50 local churches through this training.
Shalom is a non-government organization with a focus on the Great Lakes region with the expectation of expanding to the entire African continent. Shalom is currently active in Rwanda and Burundi.
Shalom seeks to partner with development organizations that are active in these countries, equipping their staff with the ability to train others in peace principles.
Organizations interested in being trained in peace principles must please contact Shalom for further information. Shalom was founded by Jean de Dieu Basabose and Cori Wielenga, former students of the Conflict Resolution and Peace Studies department of the University of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. Both completed postgraduate studies which focused on sustainable peace in the Great Lakes region.
Shalom’s vision is to empower African communities to: oprevent violent conflict onon-violently resolve conflict obuild a culture of nonviolence omove towards reconciliation
This vision is implemented through our three principal activities: peace education, research and non-violent action.

“The International Simultaneous Policy Organisation (ISPO) is a growing association of citizens world-wide who use their votes in a new co-ordinated and effective to drive all nations to cooperate in solving our planetary crisis. Transnational citizen action is vital because global markets and corporations so comprehensively overpower individual nations that no politician dares to make the first move to solve global problems for fear of competitive disadvantage.
IPSO overcomes this paralysis by bringing all nations to adopt in principle – and then to simultaneously implement – the Simultaneous Policy (SP), a range of democratically selected regulations to bring about economic justice, environmental security and peace around the world” – Director, John Bunzl
