YEI is 2018 Peace Direct’s Tomorrow Peacebuilders’ Award RecipientYoung Adult
The Young Adult Empowerment Initiatives (YEI) was one of the three recipients of 2018 Peace Direct’s Tomorrow Peace-builders’ awards in the youth-led peace building category for our grassroots peace-building in Uganda’s refugee settlements.
Our Exec. Director, Gatwal Gatkuoth traveled to New York for peace-building related meetings at the United Nations Headquarters upon invitation and later received the award on behalf of our entire team in Washington DC at Peacecon2018 in October 2018.
The cash prize has helped our team so much to further our important work as well as amplifying our peace-building programs. We profoundly appreciate Peace Direct and partners for supporting grassroots peace-building initiatives such as YEI around the world to become peace champions.
