• Youth Leadership: We believe youth have a vital role to play in leading social change and transforming conflict in their communities.
• Community Empowerment: We believe in working at the grass roots, supporting youth to build on local strengths to help communities transform themselves into tolerant peaceful societies.
• Active Tolerance: We believe peace is a process driven by active understanding, dialogue, and positive engagement with others, founded on trust and respect.
