Peace in our future

Our Story

The Peacebuilders program is a framework through which the August 7th Memorial Park works with communities to build sustainable peace.

The program started as a Children’s Club formed in
2008.
We’ve engaged 2,000 children with 350 of them
regularly coming to the Park for club activities
