The International Rescue Committee (IRC)with whom the Institute has implemented the USaid funded Conflict Management and Mitigation (CMM3 and CMM4) the former being the Youth and Community Action for Non- Violence (Youth CAN!) 20014-16 that was implemented over a 24- month period in 2 districts in Manicaland and the later, CMM4 (Resilience through Peaceful and Inclusive Relationships (REPAIR) 20016-18 being an 18- month project that was implemented in 3 districts of Manicaland as well.
Where CMM3 sought to support the formation of Youth Forums (YF) at the village level as a safe space for capacity building, youth interaction, collective action, and preparation for engagement with the wider community, CMM4 drew attention to the need for a participatory approach in the decision making process at community level with the traditionally marginalized women and youth playing an increasingly important role in the process.
