With UNICEF, YPEER is implementing a “youth for change” programme – work to rehabilitate youth and give them basic knowledge of peace building, and also training on Islamic values and culture (peace). The programme lasts for six months and goes through a peer-to-peer approach. In 2013, YPEER had partnered for 6-month TVET trainings at the youth centre with a focus on skills with potential for entrepreneurship (e.g. tailoring, electricity). Puntland Development Research Center (PDRC): While a research organization, PDRC has been responsible for a project aimed to raise awareness of youth in terms of peace, awareness, and security. This project tackles the problems of youth through a mobile audio-visual unit. The unit goes to schools and youth centres to show films that talk about youth-related issues, such as piracy, peace, insecurity, and democracy. After the show, PDRC facilitates discussions.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
