The Peace Building Fund project "Young Women and Men as Stakeholders in Ensuring Peaceful Democratic Processes and Advocates for the Prevention of Violence and Hate Speech" is being implemented by UN System in The Gambia as a part of the response to such challenges affecting community cohesion. The project also seeks to empower young people with Media and information literacy skills so they can engage ethically with information and media, mainly social media.
