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
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.
