WhatsApp peacebuilding courses: strengthening the role of young people in Kyrgyzstan

In 2018 Saferworld, the International Debate Education Association Central Asia, International Center Interbilim and Foundation for Tolerance International, launched a project to strengthen the role of young people in Kyrgyzstan to promote peace and security.

The project offers WhatsApp peacebuilding courses that provide safe spaces for young women and men in Kyrgyzstan to identify their safety concerns. The courses support young people, particularly those living in remote areas, to advocate for action and accountability from their authorities, and create opportunities for them to participate in decision-making processes.
