Support to the Warriors for Peace Academy

Warriors for Peace offers apprenticeships for ex-combatants and members of conflict-affected communities for a new start in normal life.

Detailed Project Description

Background:
Life for ex-combatants – be it rebel forces or governmental servicemen – is often challenging: finding a profitable, meaningful job, settling back in community life, dealing with physical and psychological trauma and simple live with often still destructive energies. Support is rarely provided, the self-transformation from ‘fighting against’ (more life-taking) to ‘fighting for”’ (more life-nurturing) takes time and facilitation. Equally affected can be family members of those warriors or victims of violence in conflict areas.

Support of the social business BeeWell  

BeeWell is a social business, which offers its premises for the vocational training in organic farming, income creation and aikido practice of the Warriors for Peace Academy. In close cooperation with Warriors for Peace, BeeWell provides chances for self-sustainability and independence of the academy.
