CPJ implemented a peace building and education project in the host and refugee communities under the Rohingya Response of Cox’s Bazar.
The project engaged 28 youth and emerging leaders from both the communities. 14 refugee and 14 host community participants undertook a 16-day long intensive Training of Trainers (ToT). The training curriculum was developed keeping in mind communities affected by conflicts in Myanmar. The curriculum consisted of 8 modules related to peace building.
|1. Introduction and tone setting
2. Identities: Who are we?
3. What is peace?
4. Internal barriers to peace
|5. Choosing peace: Attitudes, skills and knowledge needed
6. Skills for meeting peace building challenges
7. Deepening understanding, gathering information
8. I am a peace builder
After undergoing the intensive ToT, the volunteers delivered a 8-week series of community workshops amongst camp and host community stakeholders on each module. Over 500 community participants learnt about peace building. For many participants it was their first ever exposure to these topics. The workshops were designed in an experiential manner enabling community members to participate. The CBLP volunteers also facilitated a series of community service and extra-curricular activities during the last two months of the project. This project was funded by the Obirodh: Road to Tolerance Program under MSI/USAID.
