On 2nd march 2009, UNESCO PEER launched a peace building project "Conflict Prevention and Peace Building Networks for the Great Lakes Region and the Horn of Africa". This peace building project is being implemented in eight countries including Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi, the DR Congo, the Central Africa Republic and Somalia. The two year project is funded by the government of Japan in its effort to promote a bottom-up approach to conflict prevention and peace building by giving a voice to the grass-roots.
