Establishing a community of practice helps promote networking and encourage them to share their experiences so that they would come together virtually to share challenges, problem solving skills and results.
Social Media Platforms:
We have established two networks to virtually connect peacebuilders and encourage robust discussions on WhatsApp and Facebook. The groups aid them in sharing their PAP activities with their fellows. This initiative is helping them learn new methods and theories which helps to boost their spirit and abilities as peacebuilders.
Focus Group Discussions:
These discussions help gauge the impact of the peacebuilders’ projects on their local communities, the challenges they face during project execution, and their learnings throughout the program.
Evaluate the impact of capacity-building training on peacebuilders’ projects and their native communities;
Gauge the increase in community influence in their respective communities;
Determine the increase in their digital outreach;
Find out the challenges they faced during project execution and their learnings throughout the program;
Evaluate whether they plan to use their learned experience for future peacebuilding activities and/or to make their completed PAP sustainable; and
Chart out successes during and after the training and implementation of their PAP.
Peacebuilders are asked formally set questions exploring their experience of the program, learning/unlearning, its impact on their work and response of their community towards their peace action plans.
These community of practice is made for peacebuilders across Pakistan who are continuously working to promote peace, acceptance and social cohesion within the country. The program especially highlights the work of women peacebuilders countrywide.
