Project Aim:

To build peace between Muslim and Christian youth in post-crisis communities by providing youth with training and opportunities

The Challenge

When community violence occurs it’s the youth who take front and centre stage. Particularly those without education, opportunity and without anything to lose. Many culturally Muslim and Christian communities are separated from each other. Tensions and misunderstandings grow without conversation.

The Solution

In post-crisis or divided communities CFM establishes computer centres. These centres take 50% intake from both Muslim and Christian youth, male and female. As we learn together we learn to understand each other and find common ground in our humanity. These centres have become key projects in building sustained peace in troubled areas.
