Grantmaking

"Through the project activities funded by EWI, we gathered young people from different cultural and religious traditions and provided them with education, mentoring and a platform on which to work on advancing civil society in order to become powerful peacebuilders, aware of society’s problems and needs but also of their own responsibilities towards an active participation in reconciliation processes."
