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?

SCC has designed educational and outreach programs geared towards community development and partnered with communities and organizations where others failed or were afraid to reach.

The leadership and programs of SCC have provided the space and activities where the Tri-People and Sustainable and Ecological approaches to conflict transformation and com-munity development have been woven and mainstreamed into its programs.

Service learning as an integral part of the academic programs bridges the school and the community.

The ability of SCC leadership to be where the action is as intervener, providing a bridging leadership both horizontal and vertical has provided a peace voice for the armed conflict. Its presence in conflict communities through its local community workers and partner communi-ties are effective quick response mechanisms for the prevention of conflict escalation.

- Strategic Research and Documentation;

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