Burundi: Online Young Peace Vectors

Youths from 3 tribes in Burundi were differently used and manipulated during the civil war between 1993-2005 up to now. Our project will train and mentor Young Peace Vectors (YPV) on conflict prevention and resolution and HIV that will result in a local youth network and social reintegration. Online Blog training and Training on Audio Recordings for the community use that will be uploaded online will be done and distributed to our local medias.
