JERICHO HOPE AND PEACE (JHP) is a framework for exchange which advocates for the promotion of the rights of people affected by armed conflicts, particularly women, young people and vulnerable children, and for peaceful cohabitation within communities
Over the past 5 years, 2,400 vulnerable and at-risk youths, including 1,600 boys and 800 girls, have been made aware of their involvement and active participation in active non-violence; 20 youth peace exchange clubs have been set up in the province of North Kivu and have sensitised at least 2,400 young people on restoring mutual trust between young people and the population and creating favourable conditions for sustainable peaceful cohabitation.
From 2016 to date, 1,226 vulnerable young people, including 536 children released from armed forces and groups, have been trained in professional trades and entrepreneurship and reintegrated into their respective communities. Today, these young people are taking charge of their lives and have become the actors of their own change and live peacefully together in their communities.
