Rotary International People of Action

Champion of Peace awarded to Jean Best founder of the Rotary Peace Project at the United Nations, on 11th November 2017.

Peace Advocate Programme

A skills based programme to enable our young people to make informed choices whenever they experience any type of conflict. Qualified Peace Advocates go on to lead conferences for their peers and become lead facilitators in year 2 of the programme

Through Facilitation

Young people engage in skills which..... allows them to "Conquer Conflict" and "Transform into success" in their daily lives

Why do we need to create Peace Advocates?

Youngsters are bombarded with images depicting what they should wear, eat, drink and say by the media on a daily basis. Making choices is difficult. Peace Advocates develop better life skills for themselves and others.
