Peace & Governance

This programme targets to contribute towards creating an atmosphere of sustainable trust and harmonious co-existence of communities in the region. We realise this by facilitating conflict resolution dialogues, mediation and strengthening of local community governance institutions.

We engage in peace and governance issues in the remote areas of Marsabit County and Southern
Ethiopia in order to create an environment in which other aspects of our programmes that we
implement in communities are not affected or disrupted.
