Many children in Pakistan, especially girls, lack access to health care, education, and protection from abuse. Prem, an Atlas Corps alumnus and the Founder and CEO of Child Rise, an organization that promotes education in conflict-affected areas in Pakistan, works tirelessly to advance the rights of children in Pakistan. Peacebuilders like Prem need to be equipped with the best skills and knowledge to address conflict-related challenges and be connected to a global community of practitioners.
The Bologna Symposium on Conflict Prevention, Resolution, and Reconciliation provides practical training in mediation, negotiation, facilitation, conflict prevention, reconciliation and social entrepreneurship - enabling participants to engage with global leaders in these areas. The knowledge, skills and contacts gained in Bologna will be of great value to Prem when improving access to education and working for other legislative reforms benefiting conflict-affected children in Pakistan.
Through his organization, Child Rise, Prem will directly impact the lives of vulnerable children in Pakistan. By building on the knowledge, skills and contact gained in Bologna and by passing them on to others, Prem can significantly contribute to increasing access to education and improving other areas of legislative reform for children in Pakistan.
