About The Project
The Trustbuilding Programme prioritizes the needs of communities in conflict, which are working on transformation of their societies. They explore individual change and create safe spaces for community leaders and young people to have honest and open dialogues about uncomfortable issues that pose challenges to initiating positive change in one’s life, families and communities. This project builds bridges between different communities by fostering social cohesion and peace through tools such as intercultural dialogue, outreach activities and sport. International Trustbuilding has a deep way of working through collective healing, self-reflection, relationship building and trust-building tools within a values-based approach. For example, in Indonesia, they created board games for youth vulnerable to extremist groups. The games address the youth’s fear and anger and foster tolerance and cooperation.
