The PEACE-WAY fellowship strives to support young peacebuilders between the ages of 18 and 35 years in Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea and Togo to implement practical solutions to prevent and resolve violent conflict in their communities.
PEACE-WAY fellows will be able to:
- Complete an interactive in-person and online training curriculum on peacebuilding and conflict transformation and receive a certificate of completion.
- Network with their peers and with national, regional, and international peacebuilding and conflict transformation experts.
- Apply for seed funding to carry out their own innovative peacebuilding initiatives and travel to a two-day conference in Accra in November 2024.
PEACE-WAY fellows are required to apply through the West Africa Network for Peacebuilding in their country of residence and will be selected based on country-specific selection criteria.
PartnersGlobal is implementing PEACE-WAY in partnership with the West Africa Network for Peacebuilding (WANEP) offices in Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, Ghana, and Togo. The funding for this program is provided through the U.S. Department of State under the U.S. Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability.
