Peacebuilding

Peace through Development II (PDevII)

“When the angry mob arrived at the politician’s house we intercepted them and started calling for forgiveness. We mediated and pleaded with them. As time went on, some of the violent ones became disgusted by their own behavior and threw themselves to the ground before us; others thanked us and left without touching or breaking anything.

We were relieved and happy to be of use, but it must be said honestly that it was thanks to Equal Access that we knew how to take action. Your program has educated us without us even noticing. It cultivated in us the spirit of forgiveness and tolerance.”
