Challenge

Thousands of children were displaced when the conflict in Marawi City, Philippines broke out last May 23, 2017. With the ongoing crisis in Marawi, there have been numerous reports indicating that children are being recruited and used as frontlines and combatants to execute violence. These children, who mostly have poor access to education and social services, are exposed to and environment of armed conflict and family feuds at a very young age.

Solution

In these Peace Building Sessions, children got to play different Peace Games and learned values integrated into the game; they also had drawing activities with questions that can help them process their thoughts and feelings. Alongside with Psychosocial Care are Peace Education sessions that teach them about the Art of Peaceful Living - giving them knowledge, attitudes, skills and behavior for them to begin their journey in helping build a Culture of Peace as well as to prevent and reject violen

Long-Term Impact

The response to the Marawi crisis has highlighted the importance of having a sense of community among different sectors & working together towards holistic improvement. The reality of armed conflict's long-term effect on children cannot be ignored which signifies the need for Peace Education in the rehabilitation program for Marawi with the help of different organizations & institutions. Teaching children peaceful narratives shall contribute to Conflict Prevention & Conflict Transformation.
