Quotes from Participants of WAPI 2004

I am glad to participate in this training…. People just seem to forget we exist. Never did I imagine I’d be given this kind of opportunity to gain knowledge on peacebuilding. … I go back packed with the knowledge I have acquired to be part of a people of like mind to play a role in bringing genuine peace to my nation Liberia…  Kullie Narmah, Liberian Refugee

Back home, I will organize workshops and seminars for the purpose of sharing knowledge gained at WAPI. My target would be young people who are very often mobilized for violent conflicts, civil unrest and disturbances. I hope to teach them what I have learnt in WAPI as well as encourage them to get involved in peacebuilding and conflict prevention in their own communities. Clinton Layweh, Liberia

Before this morning’s lecture on gender, I would have argued that gender issues only have to do with women’s issues, particularly because all I ever understood by the concept was linked to women’s clamor for equality. Fr. Sylvester Kuubetesuur, Ghana

WAPI has greatly increased my understanding of the nature, causes and dynamics of conflict and had enhanced my capacity to identify, monitor and analyze conflict as well as develop integrated approaches for responding to conflict. Professor Ouedraogo Albert, Burkina Faso

Building peace is the responsibility of every member of a given society. It took my being in WAPI to realize that I also had a role to play in rebuilding my country. Thanks for stimulating this reflection WAPI.   Mary Kumba, Sierra Leone
