Malawi - Youth Training in the News

8 December 2021

On November 25, URI Malawi celebrated the graduation of 20 participants of the URI Malawi Interfaith Intercultural Youth Training programme, which has taken place for the second year in a row. This training programme brought together 20 young people from different regions of Malawi, including members of URI Cooperation Circles in Malawi. 

Over the duration of three months, the group has participated in workshops focusing on Dialogue typology and methodology, Conflict resolution and violence reduction, Leadership skills and Social media skills. The aim of the training is to support young people in Malawi to become peace ambassadors in their communities by challenging norms of conflict and violence and instead be role models of peaceful coexistence and practitioners of interfaith intercultural dialogue. 

The graduation ceremony was attended by guest of honour, Mr Chrispine Mwale, who was representing the Ministry of National Unity and Peace. Local news reporters were also present, and highlights from the day were shared later on the evening news headlines.

Here is the video featured in the local news about the highlights of this programme.
