Great Lakes Youth Network for Dialogue and Peace

Great Lakes Youth Network for Dialogue and Peace.

Our Diversity – Our Opportunity.

The Great Lakes Youth Network for Dialogue and Peace is a consortium of 6 non-governmental organizations: Konrad Adenauer Foundation (Germany), Pole Institute (DRC), Vision Jeunesse Nouvelle (Rwanda), Cornerstone Development Africa & LéO Africa Institute (Uganda), and Actions for Democracy and Local Governance (Tanzania).

The project aims to contribute to peace and stability in the Great Lakes Region by promoting the active, cooperative, sustainable and positive role of youth actions, creating a strong network between them.

We shall work with local youth groups and initiatives based in Central and Western Uganda that are committed to peace in the Great Lakes Region and are active in one or more of the following fields: gender equality, environment (including natural resources) and climate change, political representation, democracy and good governance, land and inheritance, economic stability and employment, media, education, culture and religion and forced migration.

“Great Lakes Youth Network for Dialogue and Peace. Our Diversity – our Opportunity!” is co-funded by the European Union (EU) and the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
