Our global movement for peace and nonviolence is growing! We recently welcomed three new members from Africa. We look forward to working with them and other regional partners to promote active nonviolence, education for peacebuilding, and advocacy.
AJECL (Rwanda). The Youth Association of Saint Charles Lwanga invests its efforts in revitalizing youth to play a significant role in the socio economic development of its country. AJECL aspires to a society in which youth live with humane values, integrity and dignity as peacemakers.
CADRE (DR Congo). The mission of the Comité d’Appui au Développement Rural Endogène is to work for peaceful resolution of inter-community and community conflicts and for reconciliation and peace with a focus on development. They do so by providing technical, organizational and financial support to existing institutions (schools, cooperatives, grassroots associations, committees) working in the area. It initiates community development projects and raises awareness among the population (at the grassroots).
IAPDA (Cameroon). The International Association for peace and Development in Africa aims to promote nonviolence and peace, as well as the development of communities in Cameroon through education projects, training workshops for young people in nonviolence, mediation and conflict management, and the organisation of youth camps, work camps and international exchanges. The association is convinced that without peace there is no development.
