Conflict becomes a problem when trust and conflict management capacities are absent and conflicting parties use force to secure their goals. Non-violent conflict resolution and transformation is possible when individuals and groups have trust in their governing structures, society, and institutions to manage conflicting interests, and communities are able to derive joint livelihood means. Therefore, this project will provide youth with skills through income generating activities which will create employment and income. It involves youth to deliver solutions with participatory feasibility assessments, planning and implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and sharing best practice. It supports local structures and promotes local leadership for sustainability with continued development and dialogue with communities and people of concern.
The dia-praxis method is used to foster mutual appreciation among people of different backgrounds, by working together and engaging in practical work with a shared goal, such as increased income, in order to enhance positive relationships. This activity will focus on economic inclusion to promote peaceful co-existence and encourages diverse youth groups to engage, offering an important opportunity for youth engagement and redirect attention from violence to positive living. The youth will learn to express themselves via teamwork, leadership, and social skills in youth groups of refugees (50%) and host communities (50%).
