Conflict Management volunteers document and offer input at our community-based Conflict-Resolution workshops. These workshops are two times a week meetings with different groups in the community – where group members brainstorm on how to resolve conflicts in the community.

They also discuss ways to maintain and sustain the peace in the pockets where there is apparent peace and harmony. There is a group leader who leads the discussion, assisted by an interpreter who translates from the local language into English and vice-versa. As such English-speaking international volunteers can fully understand and participate in the discussions.

In detail, the aims and objects of these meetings are to:
–Discuss the issues that bring conflicts between different towns or villages (inter-community conflicts).
–Suggest ways to solve any actual conflicts.
–Discuss ways in which different communities (towns or villages) can co-exist in peace and harmony with each other.
–Discuss the issues that bring conflicts between sections (clans) of a community (intra-community conflicts).
