The project targeted a wide range of youth through representatives of youth initiatives that work or seek to work in the field of peace building and community cohesion. By undertaking a capacity building program, the participants were able to manage their funded projects in a more effective and sustainable manner in wartime. This restored the participants’ hope in their ability to influence, work and overcome the difficult reality imposed by all the manifestations of the armed conflict. The project, which spanned over a period of twenty four months across five governorates, aimed to train youth on how to carry out advocacy campaigns on peace-building-related issues.
