Micah Nepal, one of UMN's partners started a new programme in 2016, 'Peace Building Through Mediation' with the goal of establishing a new group of inter-faith mediators who will be able to help in resolving issues on peace at both local and national levels. Recently 18 new mediators were trained in foundation level mediation skills by Laura Coulter, UMN's Peace-Building Advisor. The 18 participants were a diverse group with representatives from Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim and Christian religions.
Laura Coulter shares, "I was very pleased to see all the participants, from different religious backgrounds work so well together. They showed a real desire to know more about mediation and to enhance their skills. The mediation training was very inter-active and it encouraged me to see new mediators emerge. I hope that this group will have many opportunities to use their skills in the near future."
