Community Project Visit Conducted at Shashamanne Town

CDCB has recruited, trained, and deployed volunteer youth peace activists from three towns: Shashamanne, Arsi Negele, and Batu Town administrations with support from USAID/OTI three months ago. The idea was that these volunteers would promote peace in these towns using different strategies like peace activism by organizing youth networks on telegram on one hand and undertake innovative projects which could be used as a tool of promoting peace on the ground on the other hand. Consequently, the volunteers have performed amazing jobs by financial, technical, and capacity-building supports from CDCB in the last three months. In order to review the projects, the center has organized a community project review on May 6, 2021, on which a community team including the CDCB team, USAID focal person, concerned officials from the town administration, and individuals who render financial support for the volunteers have participated.
