With the financial support from STPP/GIZ and technical support from inmdeio, Pro Public implemented the Support for Capacity Building of the Local Dialogue Facilitators and Organizations, Establishment and Sustainability of Dialogue Centers for Peace Building project since April 2013 to March 2014. Before the implementation of the project, inmdeio, Berlin based Mediation Institute, designed the training materials on Dialogue Facilitation/Mediation and provided the training to the selected candidates from old and new communities of Piparapaschim of Saptari, Padampur/Jutpani of Chitwan, Uttarganga of Surkhet and Sandepani of Kailali,. They were mobilized to implement the activities in the project communities envisioning that they would act as the resource pool for the community and work on facilitation and prevention of conflicts in their respective communities/ regions.
The main objective of the project is to capacitate the local DFs and coordinate the peace activities. It aimed to support the process of establishment and continuation of the dialogue centers and ultimately restore peace in the communities. Different activities and peace events were organized at project communities. The programs like, eye camp, peace rally, drama exhibition, health camp, documentary show, quiz contests, cultural programs, sports events etc. were organized to gather people in a common place and promote their engagement for social cohesion.
