Campayapaan is a response to the increasing need of peace building education at school level. The camp’s aim is to provide set of activities that would further give the participants with a deeper understanding of peace and how it paves way in managing and expressing their emotions in vibrant activities and creative methods.
Many young people, despite often adverse circumstances, choose to engage in constructive initiatives and dialogues instead of being the multipliers of hatred and rejection, which fuel prejudice. When supported and recognized in these roles, these young people may become peer leaders and educators, and, in turn, sensitize and involve other young people in dialogues, mediation, intercultural communication, conflict transformation and peace work projects.
The stakeholders are B’laan students of Bacongco Extension High School, Koronadal, South Cotabato. These indigenous children have grown up in regions affected by armed conflicts, being exposed to and/or enduring the consequences of extreme forms of physical, cultural, and structural violence. These children are often confronted with dramatic life-forming experiences, emotions, and challenges. Such experiences may strongly influence the views and behaviors toward their own and other communities, their elation to peace and conflict, and their identity.
