New Partner: The Alliance for Young African Patriots

November, 2008

Insight Collaborative is pleased to announce a new partnership with The Alliance for Young African Patriots (AYAP). AYAP seeks to address the societal divisions caused by ethnic and civil wars in the Great Lakes Region of Africa by helping young people to participate in the peace building and reconciliation process. Through a peace and capacity building summer camp, AYAP will offer a framework for dialogue about the conflict, teach the skills and tools to transform ethnic and community differences into strengths, and recommend strategies for future conflict prevention. AYAP will also provide continued support for youth participants to begin their own community building projects when they return home, empowering them to be working seeds of peace and promoting sustainable, community-driven solutions to redevelopment. IC will provide networking support to help AYAP meet fundraising and advisory needs. Future collaboration may include IC content support, training, and fellowship placement.
