New Technology and Peace
Nelson Mandela once said “the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow”.
Echoing his wisdom, we invite you to join us in harnessing the power of new technologies to build more peaceful communities and to help prepare new young leaders for their future roles.
Big Data, and Digitization have revolutionized how we work, learn, and live, so our projects will leverage these new instruments to promote cyber fluency and help high-risk youth gain cutting-edge skill sets for the job market and to change attitudes or stereotypes regarding their worth. Our projects also use digitalization to support the education of high-risk adolescents, during war and pandemics, thus facilitating their reconciliation with, and re-integration into, their communities.
