WACCE Security Forum

WACCE holds regular public forums bringing together a team of expertise to share views and perspectives on prevailing security issues to inform decision-making at national and regional levels.

It brings together policy makers and practitioners in security, governance and development to interact in a manner that brings clarity and educated content.

Our forums serve as opportunity for stakeholders and experts to debate major national and regional security challenges such as immigration, violent extremism, youth unemployment, leadership and leadership transitions.

It features citizenship and community service, human rights and gender-based violence, governance and democracy. We train the youth and commit them to engage positively in building strong community values. 

WACCE PeaceNetwork

WACCE Peace Network is a platform for youth who are committed to peace in their communities. They serve as peace ambassadors, and help to deepen the impact of WACCE’s programs in their communities. They engage strongly on our various WhatsApp and other social media platforms to share their ideas, perspectives and contribute solutions to problems in their communities.

Dancing for Peace

Traditional dance serves as a universal language and bond for even parties in conflict as they can identify with it as a source of cultural relevance. WACCE utilizes dance an effective tool for conflict resolution and peace building in communities that have been affected by years of violence. As an inherent feature of our engagements, most of peacebuilding initiatives feature traditional dance.
