Peace Education & Mentorship for Students (PEMS) Program – Nigeria

Peace Education and Mentorship for Students (PEMS) program was carried out successfully at Federal Government College, Kiyawa, Jigawa State of Nigeria; on March 5, 2016. The target group were the Safe School Initiative students (73 in number), who were traumatized by the Boko Haram terrorism in Nigeria. The objectives were to teach them the basic concepts of peace and conflict, their relevance to everyday living and how to engage in conflict resolution. And to mentor them on how to better cope with emotional trauma, which many of them suffer, from previous experience to violence.
