A three day Training of Trainers (TOT) on Fundamentals of Peace Building and Conflict Prevention and Resolution was organized by Peace Channel in Collaboration with North East Institute of Social Sciences & Research (NEISSR). Based on the recent incident of lynching of Syed Sharif Khan on the 5th of March, the training was aimed at capacitating the youth as peace builders in the context of Nagaland.
Fr. C. P. Anto, Director, Peace Channel and Principal of NEISSR, exhorted the participants to be peace builders in their own capacities and prevent all forms of violent conflict in their milieu. He shared that attainment of peace also needs human resource like any other developmental programmes. Thus, the onus is on the youth to work for peace and bring development. 'Trainings are not only meant to develop the skills, but also the development of aptitude and attitude', he added. He welcomed all the participants and expressed confidence that the participant will start thinking for peace, living for peace and working for peace.
