Peacebuilding in Fragile Contexts

In a world of conflict, the lack of trust and communication coupled with competition for limited resources has easily allowed violence to become a convenient but short-lived solution.

In parts of the world where World Vision works, poor children and women often find themselves without a voice. Yet, hope can be restored. World Vision’s commitment to building peace in these communities extends beyond simply changing systems and structures. It is focused on empowering individuals as humans, and equipping them to resolve conflict and reconcile relationships.

Join us as Fred Witteveen, World Vision Bangladesh’s National Director and former National Director of World Vision Pakistan, draws on his experience from Africa to Asia to share ground-up approaches to peacebuilding in diverse and fragile contexts.

In addition, hear from individuals who have hiked through World Vision’s project in Nepal. Discover how efforts to overcome gender inequality, caste discrimination, and political differences shed light on peacebuilding hopes in South Asia.
