Peace at Workplaces (Conflict Management Training)

Conflict is an integral part of human race which transpire at any point; workplaces inclusive. Noting, workplaces are naturally stressful environments, and personal conflicts between co-workers can be both a cause and product of this stress.

WAITT

Inequalities exist in every sphere in the society; wealth and poverty playing a key role while compassion plays a great role in breaking barriers of inequality in the society.

Most wallowing in poverty – with a great challenge in affording their basic requirements of living, lack of food to eat, shelter to live, clothes to wear let alone education which is a basic human need.

WAITT is geared towards bringing a source of succor to indigent families either pierced by poverty or Internally Displaced Persons affected by conflicts with particular interest on women and children.

Created as our “Giving-Is-Living” program by way of providing resources such as (educational scholarship, school materials, food materials and psychosocial counseling) for a better livelihood; and in the same way offering humanitarian assistant by way of donating relief materials, and conduction of trauma healing for IDPs.

Indigent people do not have enough clothing, food, education and healthcare. They hardly get opportunities, experience inadequate nutrition which presents them with higher risk of diseases and lack basic essentials for living; resulting in low achievement.

Through WAITT we strengthen their dependency, create new systems built on inter-dependency, motivating them to work and move forward and we are excited each time we see an effective and long-lasting improvement in their lives.

At Galaxy4Peace, not only do we focus on uplifting them with funds or other kind of support but our focus is also directed on raising them psychosocially, supporting and empowering them to build new relationship, self-confidence and self-esteem despite their social-classes and fend for themselves.

Sweat4Peace

The power of Peacebuilding is so influential to an extent that people subconsciously become equipped with an ability to create a non-violent way of life.

Effective collaboration with different companies and organizations, financial institutions, government sectors, placing emphasis on improving the private sector’s response in ensuring support for funding peacebuilding helped birth the concept of Sweat4Peace.

Sweat4Peace stresses the need for a more coordinated, coherent and integrated efforts of public private partnerships in ensuring a very efficient delivery of critical peacebuilding tasks.

Also ensuring a better coordination between all sectors and other development actors, all collaborating to achieve the same goals, hence through this tool we call for the concerted efforts of individuals, companies, and organizations to promote peace through various peacebuilding projects but with particular attention to the peace day projects annually observed on 21st September.

As a tool that promotes private public partnership in achieving sustainable peace, various stakeholders learn of their roles to promote peace as one of the major ingredients in realizing economic growth, particularly by investing in peacebuilding programs.

Every year, this platform organizes multiple events in observance of the International Peace Day. Since the inception of Sweat4Peace in 2014, over 3000 young people and as many as 10 companies have been aligned together under this initiative. 

This project giving Nigerian citizens and companies the platform to join the rest of the world to observe peace day in Nigeria is not only tied to an annual peace walk , rather its tied to other forms of sporting activities that will prompt people to Sweat4peace

The #InternationalDayOfRemembrance & Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism was established by the @UN General Assembly in 2017. In 2017 alone, nearly 3 quarters of all deaths caused by terrorism were in just 5 countries, including Nigeria.
.
Security Council resolution 1888 was preceded by the ground-breaking resolution 1820, which elevated the issue of conflict-related violence into the peace and security agenda as a threat to security and an impediment to the restoration of peace. We at @galaxy4peace are calling the @AU_PSD to place the issue of conflict-related violence on the agenda. We also call for the presence, intervention and support from @AUBinetaDiop, an African sister and steadfast champion of the Women, Peace and Security agenda.

Today is World Humanitarian Day

A global day dedicated to recognize humanitarians and those who have lost their lives working for humanitarian causes.

While, we alute ALL #Humanitarian workers who support people affected by #emergencies, conflicts, disasters, it's amazing to see that this year's theme is paying tribute & strengthening the role of #WomenHumanitarians all over the world.

Surprisingly to many, women make up a large number of those who risk their own lives to save others.
They are often the first to respond and the last to leave the conflict zone.
As we salute these women who deserve to be celebrated, let us reteriate that health workers, health facilities, women and all humanitarian personnels are #NotATarget.

Happy World Humanitarian Day
