PROGRESS: Has your organization seen progress toward a culture of peace and nonviolence in your domain of action and in your constituency during the second half of the Decade?

The CONTACT participants who are trained and educated in peacebuilding and conflict transformation, become trainers and educators themselves and they educate further their communities and organizations. The positive ripple effect is obvious and demonstrated through stories, articles or on line sharing.

OBSTACLES: Has your organization faced any obstacles to implementing the culture of peace and nonviolence? If so, what were they?

Finances. We are unable to fully support participants who need the training the most but have the least resources to attend. Visa: many of the CONTACT applicants are denied visa and entry in the US.

PLANS: What new engagements are planned by your organization in the short, medium and long term to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence?

We will continue to do the best that we can to offer these educational programs and to reach out to conflict and post conflict communities.

GLOBAL MOVEMENT: How do you think the culture of peace and nonviolence could be strengthened and supported at the world level??

Increase dialogue, decrease (negative) media; support training and education.
