WIPB_Educative_material.jpgThis project is implemented in the Communities of Bali Nyonga, Bawock, Balikumbat and Bambalang, which have had a history of violent conflicts on at least three different levels which greatly affect women:

1.    Inter-village conflicts (between different chiefdoms) on land

2.    Intra-village conflicts on land

3.    Domestic conflicts

The project seeks to realizeeffective peace building processes in target communities with women as major actors in the households, within and between villages contributing to more stable communities, with the following outcomes and outputs:

1.    The Women Peace Committees play a pro-active and effective role in the prevention of violence in domestic conflicts, intra-village and inter-village conflicts.

2.    The members of the Women Peace Committees are able to better understand conflicts and manage them constructively

3.    Male and female leaders of the target communities are able to  better understand conflicts and to manage them more constructively and have realized the importance of fully including women into peace building processes

4.    Communities are more stable as a result of effective peace processes.

The target communities have a long history of violent conflicts with considerable human casualties and huge material damages. The untold impact on women and children remain the invisible scars of conflict particularly in these communities, as this considerable part of the population never gets involved in peace negotiations and so whatever results obtained are ephemeral.
