What we do
We are researching to develop a practical conflict management approach tailored to the African context, based on the realities of today with communication adapted to African values, patterns, concepts and ideologies
Training of peace weavers
We organize the Training of Trainers capacity building workshop equipping our beneficiaries with tools and skills in combating hate speech online and offline while training other youths. Upon carrying out pass it on activities, they become a part of the community of peace weavers.
Our Executive team is working on creating and running the Xhuma Africa center for compassion
At the center, our beneficiaries will practice love for humans, trees, plants and living organisms creating a safe space for peaceful coexistence in an effort to reconnect youths back to nature and learn peace building from other living things.
We promote self-reliance economic activities
We believe that education, and self-employment gives people an inner strength to lead a better life. We organize trainings on income generating activities to economically empower survivors of structural violence and make them self-reliant.
Alternative Peace Education
Peace education activities promote the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will help people either to prevent the occurrence of conflict, resolve conflicts peacefully, or create social conditions conducive to peace.
Core values of nonviolence and social justice are central to peace education. Nonviolence is manifested through values such as respect for human rights, freedom and trust. Social justice is realized by principles of equality, responsibility, and solidarity.
Our interventions include nonviolence, conflict resolution techniques, democracy, gender equality, human rights, environmental conservation, communication skills, coexistence, and tolerance of diversity.
Peace education can be delivered to people of all ages, in both formal and informal settings. At Xhuma Africa, our target group are young people.
The minds of young people are targeted and radicalized before recruitment as combatants in conflicts around the world. Young people are both actors and victims of societal violence. We are channeling the energy of young people to work for peace than violence. To create public dialogue different factions of society are often brought together in peace education programmed – these typically include civil society groups, schools, tribal leaders and the media. Yet due to the many areas covered by peace education, initiatives are primarily determined by culture and context, as well as by the projects’ scopes and objectives.
Peace education and peacebuilding are therefore intrinsically linked. The UN’s actions for peacebuilding include education as one of its principle components. For peacebuilding initiatives to remain sustainable it is vital that attitudes towards war and violence are transformed and translated into long-term behavioral change which seek alternative solutions to armed conflict.
