Africa: Empowering New Generations for Nonviolence and Entrepreneurship
In May 2018, Pax Christi International launched a new programme in the Great Lakes region in Africa called ‘Empowering new generations on active nonviolence and entrepreneurship'. The purpose of the programme is to educate young people on the culture of peace and active nonviolence and includes assisting disadvantaged youth in creating small businesses. This project is taking place simultaneously in 3 countries (Burundi, Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo) and is being implemented by 16 organisations in Kinshasa, Kananga, Kisangani, Goma, Bukavu, Butembo, Uvira, Butare and Bujumbura.
