"Initially, it seemed impossible to convince them, but rather than tell them why we want girls to participate, we asked, 'Why do you not want them to participate?'"

On #MandelaDay, as an ode to one of our beloved Peacebuilders, we unveil our journey as an organization led by youth and women to contribute to world peace and equity.

Had #Madiba been alive on his 100th birthday, we are sure he would be cheering us all on to do what seems impossible. The world might be crumbling in all its corners but we carry the legacy of our heroes to hold it together through our determination and commitment.
We welcome you to join us in our journey and make it more fruitful and beautiful.

Exactly one year ago, I walked into the UNHCR headquarters to begin my journey of work to improve the lives of persons forced to flee across the 🌍. I must admit, the world hasn’t been saved yet, but I’m convinced that everyone has a role to play and I surely am fighting and standing with refugees. Today, I’m reflecting on the past 12 months and I’m so very grateful for what I’ve learned and was able to contribute thus far. 12 months down, 3 more to go... #withrefugees #aveclesréfugiés #conlosrefugiados #UNHCR #UN #unitednations #Geneva #Switzerland #participation #youth4peace #refugees #earthling

El govern del Marroc prohibeix les manifestacions pacífiques i nega el reconeixement legal d’organitzacions de defensa dels drets humans. El dret a un judici just, a la integritat física i l’accés a una feina no són respectats.

Les forces de seguretat practiquen detencions arbitràries a activistes sahrauís i utilitzen mètodes de tortura per aconseguir confesions. Tot això amb la impunitat dels tribunals que acaben en molts casos amb empresonaments injustos.

Les protestes de Gdeim Izik, el 8 de novembre 2010, que va representar una de les espurnes de les primaveres àrabs, van ser reprimits durament per les forces de seguretat marroquines, amb centenars de ferits i condemnes de fins a 30 anys de presó per a les activistes.

A més a més, el “mur de la vergonya” construït pel Marroc provoca que milers de famílies segueixin separades després de més de 40 anys. Moltes d’elles, i especialment les joves, viuen a la diàspora com a única opció per tenir una vida dignar i sostenir les famílies als camps.

És significatiu que durant la recerca per aquesta campanya hagi resultat molt dificultosa l’obtenció de dades i informació sobre la situació del Sàhara Occidental, tot i lea proximitat territorial i la responsabilitat històrica de l'estat espanyol.

YfPI conducted an orientation program for the incoming fellows with an objective to make them acquainted with the vision, mission and culture of YfPI and building their capacities by imparting knowledge, skills, values and attitudes on peacebuilding.

The day began with Play for Peace followed by sharing the vision, mission and previous work of the organisation. To help the fellows become more familiar about the work and culture, the members shared their experiences and peace journeys. Eventuay, various tools like prioritizing matrix and learning curve were shared to kickstart their journey.
The two day training and orientation ended with a reflection session and a celebration to bid farewell to our outgoing fellows.

DYK that the oldest peace symbol used in this world was the olive branch which dated back to 70 BC ?
The Roman Poet, Virgin, associated the plump olive with Pax, the goddess of #Peace, and he used the olive branch as a symbol of peace in his latin epic poem tagged Aeneid.
The ancient Romans believed that there is an intimate relationship between war and peace and as such that was why Mars, the God of War, had another aspect, Mars Pacifer or Mars the bringer of Peace, who is shown on coins of the later Roman empire, also bearing an olive branch.
In observance of #WorldEmojiDay, today's #PeaceTuesday focus for this week will be on an interesting, different, fun topic 'Peace Emojis' the meaning behind them and their histories.
While we encourage you to kindly use the hashtag #PeaceTuesday in your contribution to enable us capture all inputs, share with us on the comment session which is your favorite emoji.

En la llei juvenil israeliana es reconeixen com a infants a aquelles persones menors de 18 anys, en canvi, en l’ordre militar 132, es considera a un infant palestí com a adult a partir dels 16 anys.

Això els converteix en víctimes de processos judicials, detencions, així com tortures i agressions per part de l’estat israelià. Les acusacions més habituals són per llançar pedres.

A finals de maig del 2018, 291 menors palestines estaven retingudes en presons israelianes, així com 3 en detenció administrativa.

A Jesuralem, les palestines menors de 14 anys acusades de llançament de pedres són condemnades a arrest domiciliari fora del seu llocs de residència. Aquest mètode paralitza la vida de les menors, n’interromp el procés de formació, l’allunya de la seva família i comunitat i trenca l’economia de la llar.

Ahed Tamimi (17 anys) continua detinguda des de fa 6 mesos, incomunicada en un centre de màxima seguretat. Va ser acusada d’increpar i agredir a un soldat israelià i condemnada el desembre de 2017 a 8 mesos de presó. El seu empresonament i situació d’incomunicació és una greu vulneració dels drets humans.

Com ella, altres menors palestins han patit agressions, totures i empresonaments per part de l’estat israelià. http://www.palestinalibre.org/articulo.php?a=65787

Day 1

YfPI celebrated World Youth Skills Day on 14th and 15th July 2016 by conducting a training and orientation for our incoming peace fellows. The training aimed at building capacities of fellows by imparting knowledge, skills, values and attitudes on peacebuilding. The purpose of the training was to equip the fellows with essential skills like self-awareness, critical thinking, effective communication, team-building and collaboration to solve inter-personal and intra-personal conflict by practicing values like empathy, nonviolence, inclusiveness and acceptance to foster a culture of peace. The training culminated with introducing the fellows to UNSCR 2250, a landmark resolution on Youth, Peace and Security that recognizes youth as major stakeholders in promotion and maintenance of international peace and security. The training ended with a reflection session to share the key take aways of the day.

El percentatge d’atur entre les sahrauís dels camps és de gairebé el 80%, tot i que el 60% tenen estudis universitaris. Les que han estudiat, però, ho han hagut de fer almenys 600km lluny de casa seva.

La manca d’infraestructures i l’aïllament fruit de l’ocupació del Sàhara occidental per part de l’estat marroquí, fa que actualment el 100% de la població dels camps de refugiats depengui de l’ajuda humanitària.

#YoungDefenders #Youth4Peace #SaharaOccidental

Tot i la gran representativitat com a segment de població, la joventut palestina sovint queda relegada a un segon pla pel que fa a la participació política i social.
La població jove és la més afectada per l’atur a Palestina amb un índex del 39% a Cisjordània, i gairebé del 60% a Gaza. A Israel (Palestina 48) la taxa de pobresa entre les famílies palestines és del 50%. Avui llancem campanya #YoungDefenders per visibilitzar vulneracions de drets i rol de les joves en la construcció de pau a la mediterrània.

#Youth4Peace #Palestina

At the end of the day, each delegate was a winner, as each person grew as a speaker, and gained awareness and knowledge. This collaboration was V2C’s first venture, and it garnered major success.This mega success has inspired us, as an organisation, to initiate more programmes and sessions and spur a change in the lives of the youth and inspire them to do the same.
