Supply of TVET Equipment and Materials (Welding Trade)

Interpeace

Interpeace is an international organization that prevents violence and builds lasting peace. We have 27 years of experience working in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Europe and Latin America.

Violent conflict tears apart societies and colors all relationships. Interpeace builds trust as the glue that bring societies back together.

Many solutions to conflict do not last because they are imposed or do not take fully into account the views and needs of those who are most affected. Interpeace works to have solutions designed and led locally from the grassroot communities to the most senior decision-making levels.

In the heat of conflict, it can be difficult for people to see what connects them to others, rather than what drives them apart. Our approach seeks to help different parts of society come together to identify and harness their common strengths for sustainable peace.

Everyone’s contribution to peace matters, especially the International Community together. Interpeace therefore also supports others by offering fresh thinking and expert advice about peacebuilding.

Interpeace is an international organization for peacebuilding, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. Its aim is to strengthen the capacities of societies to manage conflict in non-violent, non-coercive ways by assisting national actors in their efforts to develop social and political cohesion.

Background

In the 27 years since the genocide against the Tutsi, Rwanda has made strident efforts towards recovery and healing, across various dimensions of social and economic life. This has been characterized by cross-sectoral and locally owned innovations in diverse fields of practice, such as mental health, social cohesion, and sustainability of livelihoods. With the funding from European Union, Interpeace Rwanda is seeking to support the implementation of Rwanda Government’s mental health strategy (2020-2024), Through the ‘’Reinforcing community capacity for social cohesion and reconciliation through societal trauma healing in Bugesera District’’ Programme, Interpeace supported the training of young women and men in Bugesera District to acquire TVET skills in the trades of their choice.  This Programme is implemented in partnership with Prison Fellowship Rwanda (PFR), the National Unity and Reconciliation Commission (NURC), Bugesera District, Rwanda Correctional Service (RCS) and the Ministry of Health through Rwanda Bio-medical Center (RBC).
