Project Description:

A non-formal, community-based peace education programme providing communities with the essential tools to address poor leadership and the misuse and abuse of power.


Peacebuilding Impact:

  • Individuals and communities constructively prevent [potential] violent conflict on all levels of society by addressing negative behaviour and power structures which lead to discrimination and exclusion.
  • Individuals and communities are prepared to constructively engage with opportunities coming from the PRS or other actors.



Key outcomes are related to changes in Skills, Knowledge, Behaviour, Attitude, Values, and Acceptance (the below provide an introduction for the purposes of this “summary,” but all outcomes listed in the logframe are “key” to the Impact):

  • Problem-solving, negotiation, and mediation are used by the community to address [potential] conflicts and move toward reconciliation.
  • Increased understanding and community consensus on those [potential] conflicts hindering “inclusive growth” in their community.


Outputs and Key Activities:

Utilising the established and proven INEE Peace Education materials for community-based, non-formal peace education, at least 15,000 community decision-makers will be provided with CE Programme tools through 500+ Community Workshops on peace, human rights, and civic participation. The tools will allow for essential knowledge and skills changes among the beneficiaries. A number of outputs and activities will be implemented in order to ensure the transfer of individual change to socio-political change, including the training of UN/GoL/CSO stakeholders on the CE Programme, radio programmes, and the development and presentation to each Community-at-Large of an “Opportunity Plan” developed during the course of the Community Workshop. The CE Programme will also ensure an established and sustained Peacebuilding Support Network throughout the field through the training of 500 standout community workshop participants trained and equipped to become community workshop facilitators and support the MIA Peacebuilding initiatives. Outputs and activities are cumulatively necessary to achieve the intended outcomes and impact. (All outputs and activities are listed in detail in the logframe).  


Indicator and Benchmarks:

Peacebuilding indicators are listed below. Indicators as to Outcomes and outputs are listed in full in the logframe:

  • Number of violent conflicts resulting from discrimination and exclusion reduced.
  • Growth experienced under the PRS is perceived as “inclusive” in the CE Programme communities.
  • Communities receiving CW workshops are deemed more attractive by socially responsible donors and/or investors.
