EAST AFRICA RELIGIOUS LEADERS MEET FOR PEACE BUILDING TRAINING AT MS-TCDC
MS Training Centre for Development Cooperation (MS TCDC), in Usa Rive, Arusha, Tanzania is hosting five day training in peace building and conflict resolution for religious leaders in East Africa. The training brings together 32 religious leaders including traditionalists to share experiences, gain new insights and competencies on peace building and conflict resolution to champion peace and religious tolerance in their communities/countries. The training is part of a series of Governance and Accountability courses offered by MS-TCDC through funding from DANIDA. More training opportunities for training on Peace Building and Conflict Resolution will be offered for religious leaders from Africa. Religious leaders have surmountable influence in their communities and hence a force to reckon with in peace building and conflict resolution initiatives.
Amid emerging and in some places growing religious tensions in East Africa, MS-TCDC a training centre with a mission to train for promotion and protection of human rights saw it fit to contribute to the regional peace building initiatives by organizing trainings on peace building and conflict resolution for religious leaders in East Africa.
MS TCDC is formerly known as the Danish Volunteer Training Centre, and is a regional Training Centre of ActionAid Denmark. The centre was established in 1967 under a bilateral agreement between the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania and the Royal Danish Government. Today the center trains Civil Society Organizations; public and private organizations from all walks of life with a special focus on governance, human rights based approaches and development studies. The centre also offers academic programs including certificates, diplomas, and bachelor and master degrees.
MS-TCDC feels privileged to have been accorded the opportunity to host and train religious leaders from East Africa.
“The choice of MS-TCDC as a destination for training is recognition of our 47 years experience in development management training and contribution to human rights promotion and protection in the region says Principal Suma Kaare” .
