A few years ago, TLC conducted training in this school. Some students were trained in peer mediation and they created peace clubs. This year, however, many of these students went to secondary school. After the school reopened, the leaders of the school realized that they have too few students in peace clubs and conflict is still there. This is why we conducted this training because it was needed in this school.
With support from TLC, local authorities of this sector attended the training. During his speech to open the training, the leader of Kirerema primary school said, “we thank TLC so much for their help in building peace in this school. Each year we receive peer mediation training at this school. More than 200 students have been trained, even if they did not go to this school… we see the harvest of seeds you planted.”
On January 15th, the first day of training, the government set the new measures of COVID-19, and we thought the training had to stop. We were so happy to hear the local authorities and school leaders allowed us to continue our training while respecting the measures of COVID-19.
