Community Consultation Meeting …Today we conducted community consultation meeting with volunteers, community groups and local structure representatives. We had bigger turnout 34 participants at Shashamane Municipal Hall. It was a fruitful meeting where we managed to review the project’s current status and next planned activities. The community consultation meeting was organized for the three towns on 25, 26, 27 of Nov 2021 at Shashamane, Arsi-Negele and Batu respectively. Center for Development and Capacity Building (CDCB) has implemented “Youth Peace volunteers project” in Oromia three towns (Shashamane, Arsi Negelle and Batu) with the financial support of USAID/OTI/Dexis starting from December 21, 2020 to April 2021. The project was intended to mitigate conflict that has the potential to destabilize peace and social cohesions among community groups through volunteer youth peace promoter and small community projects. Reviewing the good results and achievements of the project, CDCB and USAID/OTI/Dexis decided to further deepen the project and scale up to areas of similar context (Kofale, Dodola, Adaba and Robe) for the next 6 months.
