Dealing with community conflict, (lsp 0.010 [dwcc])

470

Published on

Does conflict always have to be expressed with violence? Yet, perhaps nothing is more commonly observed in our communities today than violent conflict, often resulting in the loss of human lives, also sometimes causing human displacement and permanent or protracted dislocations in human relationships. Once conflict sets in, people tend to live in prolonged pain, hatred, anxiety, and regret, and until someone comes around to help restore the broken relationships, no good ever comes out of the situation. But, even if the relationships are restored, you still need to bring back those important infrastructures and facilities that can make life really worth living again!
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/collective good.

  14. 14. How can LSP helpyou? Perhaps nothing is more commonly observed in yourcommunity today than violent conflict, often resulting in theloss of property and human lives, also sometimes causinghuman displacement and permanent or protracteddislocations in human relationships. Quite often, such violent conflicts result in the destruction ofimportant infrastructures upon which the wellbeing of yourcommunity has depended. Far too often, once such infrastructures are destroyed ortampered with, no one comes to the rescue. So yourcommunity has to learn to live with the intolerable situation. But what happens most of the time? The absence of suchimportant infrastructures, coupled with the fact that humanrelationships in the community have beencompromised, generally tends to brew further conflict in thecommunity. The LEADING SKILLS Project, August 2011by Nathaniel Msen Awuapila, MIAM 14
  15. 15. How can LSP helpyou? So, what happens then? People continue to live with pain, hatred, anxiety, andregret. Until someone comes around to help restore the brokenrelationships, no good can really come out of thesituation. Even if the relationships are restored, you still need tobring back those important infrastructures and otherfacilities that can make life in the community really worthliving again!But then, we ask the question: mustThe LEADING SKILLS Project, August 2011 byNathaniel Msen Awuapila, M.IAM 15
  16. 16.

  18. 18. LSP key motivation The LEADING SKILLS Project seeks to persuadechildren and youths to realize the power of skills. Youknow, it’s said that knowledge is power.
