Peace-making and Conflict Resolution

The Foundation has a long-term plan of establishing a Centre for Peace, Justice and Social Equity.

As a beginning towards this initiative, the Foundation, in collaboration with WISCOMP (Women in Security, Conflict Management and Peace Foundation, an unit of the Universal Responsibility of His Holiness, The Dalai Lama, New Delhi) organised a training workshop on “Women in Peace Making and Conflict Resolution”. Fifteen students and five faculty members of the prestigious MOP Vaishnav College for Women in Chennai participated in the workshop. More such training workshops are being planned as part of the long-term plan of establishing the Centre for Peace. Documentation of the workshop can be obtained from the Foundation.   

On October 3rd 2008, the Foundation in collaboration with the Advisor for Tamil Nadu to the Supreme Court Commissioner on Food Security organised a Public Hearing on Food Security for dalits in the Kovalam area near Chennai city.  The report from the Hearing can be obtained from the Foundation.
