Funding or lack of financial resources,lack of sensitization materials,lack of infrastructures such as transport,equipments etc,has been our prime obstacle.
Lack of government support and commitment of other organisations to sensitize on the culture of peace and non-violence has slowed down public awareness.It has been equally difficult to bring together leaders of other organisation
