Summary

Lama, a Middle Eastern peace-building leader across Africa, Asia, and Europe, is a passionate advocate for women and their leadership globally. She is using mountain climbing, another passion, to promote women in peace building: having just returned from Mount Lobuche, she is looking to Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe, which she will summit in June. All donations will be given to Jordan's leading NGO, Generations For Peace, whose global programmes empower women to lead peace building.

Challenge

Peace building is largely response-oriented and male-dominated. Yet for every US dollar spent on conflict prevention through peace building, the future cost of conflict is reduced by 16 USD - saving $2.94 trillion over 10 years. In many areas where peace building most needed, women are not seen as capable of contributing the necessary elements to make peace-building progress. However, we know that women play an important role not only in their communities, but also in bringing peace to them.

Solution

It's time to make it widely known that women can and must play prominent roles in peace building if we want to achieve sustainable peace. In climbing Mount Elbrus, Lama is representing the "mountains" women must summit in order to prove their worth and contribute meaningfully to fields like peace building. All proceeds will go toward programmes that empower women at the grassroots around the globe, instilling in them the hope and sharing with them the skills they need to lead peace building.

Long-Term Impact

By highlighting the "mountains" women must climb and their ability to overcome them, Lama will help give voice and recognition to women looking to leave their mark in peace building. Both Lama and Generations For Peace recognise the presence of women in the field as vital for a range of reasons, and work to ensure that their involvement in peace building manifests at all levels - from the grassroots to the mountaintops!
