Rationale of the program
Uganda has experiences episodes of instabilities and conflict both from her neighbors and with herself locally. A good account of this is illustrated by our history between 1965 to date. Aware that young people form a very big number but more so very influential in decision making given their access and activeness in the modern technological trends, being susceptible to radicalization and extreme violence, Peace-Jam program provides the answer to creating platforms of discussion and dialogue leaving violence at the extreme end – never to happen. More so, Makerere University Peace Center provides a unique space to cascade the program to further influence behavioral change capacity of students at universities and high schools countrywide.
