PAIMAN holds national peace convention

PAIMAN Alumni Trust organised a national peace convention on Thursday which was attended by parliamentarians, representatives of INGO's, media personnel, officials of various government departments and PAIMANs TOLANA members from various districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Fata.

The convention was held to celebrate the efforts of PAIMANs TOLANA members for their unprecedented work of addressing the menace of extremism through community awareness, networking and capacity building of youth and mothers. On this occasion PAIMANs TOLANA also shared their experiences and best practices of the work they had conducted in the field regarding social cohesion and harmony using indigenous ways of dialogue and mediation that they have learned during their training at PAIMAN.

On this occasion Shafqat Mehmood, Chairman PAIMAN said that PAIMAN has started a non violent movement to counter violent extremism through our TOLANA members across KP and Fata. "Our biggest achievement remains a network of active peace practitioners called TOLANA across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Fata who now are skilful enough to build social cohesion by engaging youth, communities and local leaders through participatory and community based approaches," he added.

KP Home Secretary Akhtar Ali Shah stressed on the importance of collaboration between civil society and the government for addressing violent extremism effectively. MNA Shaista Parvez Malik highlighted the need for understanding the role that youth and women can play in building peaceful societies. PAIMAN Executive Director Mossarat Qadeem also addressed the convention. PAIMAN Alumni Trust under its "Lets live in Peace Programme" has been working across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Fata since 2008 to create social cohesion through community outreach, capacity building and advocacy.
