Farhan M. Hidig, Somaliland National Youth Organisation – Somaliland

It was an amazing training. The trainer made the sessions fun and interested whilst also facilitating a participatory environment and therefore strong cooperation between the candidates. I learned a lot, not only about peace and pre-conflict management, but also about my own and others’ experience and how the lessons we identified can be applied to peacebuilding here as well as regionally and globally. I have shared these lessons with my organisation, and we have begun to build these into our planning of activities and grant applications. We have also adapted our employment practices of interns to be more conflict sensitive, for the sake of contributing to the peacebuilding effort.
