  11. 11. How can LSP help?<br />Perhaps nothing is more commonly observed in your community today than violent conflict, often resulting in the loss of property and human lives, also sometimes causing dislocations in human relationships, which are not easily restored.<br />Quite often, such violent conflicts result in the destruction of important infrastructures upon which the wellbeing of your community has depended. <br />Far too often, once such infrastructures are destroyed or tampered with, no one comes to the rescue. So your community has to learn to live with the intolerable situation.<br />But what happens most of the time? The absence of such important infrastructures, coupled with the fact that human relationships in the community have been compromised, generally tends to brew further conflict in the community.<br />So, what happens then?<br />People continue to live with pain, hatred, anxiety, and regret. Yet, until somebody comes around to help restore the broken relationships, no good can really come out of the pain, hatred, anxiety, and regrets that are felt or expressed. But even if relationships in the community are restored, you still need to bring back those important infrastructures and other facilities that can make life in the community really worth living again!<br />But then, we ask the question: must conflict be expressed violently?<br />LSP agrees thus: in this world, conflict is unavoidable; still, violent conflict is surely avoidable; with adequate amount of capacity people can live amicably or express their conflicts non-violently; this way, their relationships can indeed grow better and better; the particular capacities they require also include, the right set of attitudes and guided emotions, and trained ability to construct appropriate social structures and processes, as well as the particular skills to harness emerging opportunities that usually arise even in uncertain circumstances.<br />LSP also agrees that conflict is often a necessary path to growth and development, and so ought not be detested but embraced as long as it is pursued by nonviolent means.<br />LSP leader, Nathaniel Msen Awuapila with his team, offers free training and mentoring to desiring youths and institutions that seek to acquire or build their skills and general capacity to live in peace and build a healthy, happy community of responsible citizens whose social and physical environment is protected, for their mutual good.<br />The LEADING SKILLS Project, August 2011<br />by Nathaniel Msen Awuapila, M.IAM<br />11<br />
  12. 12. Why LSP?<br />The LEADING SKILLS Project is designed to inspire the target audience and motivate them to act in the interest of their total growth and development, the obvious expected outcome of which is a happy youth, a peaceful neighbourhood, and a community of highly motivated, caring and collaborative persons, who jointly seek to build a global community that protects the freedoms and dignity of each human person, a community that also protects their environment.<br />The LEADING SKILLS Project, August 2011<br />by Nathaniel Msen Awuapila, M.IAM<br />12<br />
  13. 13. LSP key motivation<br />The LEADING SKILLS Project seeks to persuade children and youths to realize the power of skills. You know, it’s said that knowledge is power. Truth is, the POWER in the body of knowledge resides mainly in the SKILL to apply what is known. So, knowledge without know-how is dead!<br />The LEADING SKILLS Project, August 2011<br />by Nathaniel Msen Awuapila, M.IAM<br />13<br />
