In June 2006, a group of Liberians, Ghanaians and other nationals residing in the Buduburam refugee settlement came together to establish the Pan African Center for Peace and Conflict Resolution (PAC). PAC was established to help promote peace education, community development, capacity building, training programmes, trauma counselling, human rights issues and volunteering.
Beneficiaries of PAC include under-privileged children, women, youths, schools, community dwellers, and community-based organisations.
PAC’s current ongoing projects include an eight-week capacity building training programme designed to empower local residents on how to establish and successfully run community development projects. Course topics include NGO management techniques, peace education and conflict resolution, teamwork and presentation skills, and basic psychology and counselling. It also offers volunteering opportunities, academic training, and trades such as tailoring and general construction.
