This June, QUNO was pleased to host a visit from Adrien Niyongabo, Coordinator of Healing and Rebuilding our Communities (HROC) in Burundi. HROC emerged from Alternatives to Violence, a conflict resolution program developed by Quakers and prisoners in the United States and Canada. Quakers in Burundi, recognizing the need for reconciliation and healing between Hutu and Tutsi communities, have been conducting three-day HROC workshops to help participants cope with trauma and restore relationships.
The protests and revolutions that have swept through the Middle East, have not left Palestine untouched. Youth in Palestine began their own movement, calling for an end to the internal divisions between Palestinian political factions. In their eyes, the power struggle between Hamas, which runs Gaza, and Fatah, which runs the West Bank, has worsened their hopes for a peaceful, prosperous future.
