As an individual who loves resolving conflicts, I believe peace is an essential neccesity for our daily living and with the level of violence, conflicts and terrorism in the world it’s evident that peace is needed; that’s why I’m excited about The Africa Peace Summit; a partnership between World Peace Initiative Foundation and Kenyatta University Mentoring Program. They’re bringing it to our doorstep. This is the first ever Africa Peace Summit happening in Kenya, whose theme is “Nurturing A Culture Of Peace Within The Youth.” The aim is to provide a forum for youth in Africa to engage on identifying strategies for conflict resolution and peace-building.
Thus, the forum will help the youth in Africa to connect, learn, and discover practical tips in order to become mindful and efficient at personal and professional levels, enhance individual potential, talents and capabilities from varied dimensions, co-creating a culture of peace in Africa.
I also want to introduce a young enterprising lady Wadi Ben-Hirki, who has an NGO that’s impacting the lives of the less privileged in Northern Nigeria. Her work has gained international recognition and she has been nominated for the Africa Peace Summit Awards.
