The project’s overall goal is to increase young people’s readiness and confidence to engage in reconciliation processes in the Central African Republic (CAR). With more than three decades of recurrent violent conflict and socio-political crisis, all young people in CAR have spent most of their lives in the shadow of conflict.

Young men and women lived through the arrival of Armed opposition groups and the consequences that violence ensued. Today, some displaced youths are considering returning to their home place, but this is met with resistance from local communities.
