I experienced police brutality first hand some years back shamefully in my own country Nigeria; I was at one of the stations in Lagos with a friend just to see his brother who was just arrested for just loitering at night apparently waiting for his girl then, but to be surprised within just 4 days of detention he had been arraigned along side with some other unknown men who he never knew as armed robbers and charge to court all because he and his brother couldn’t pay for bail, then it was chaos with the police force and I was so sad that I could do anything and wished I had some authority to stop the madness, I wished I was in the army, navy, and all kind of forces to stop these police officers but I and my friend couldn’t, we both watch his brother being beating for brutally covered with blood and thorn face.
Since then I have longed to be in a position where I can help stop disputes and injustice and to add to it, the current state of bombings and innocent killings needs attention and more voices against it.
So many must seen more than I’ve seen, I only hope I can help and be part of your peace keeping.
My name is Saeed Khan Falahi. I am from India. I am working for global peace and justice. I think it is high time to come forward together to raise our voice for establishing peace globally and also for defending human rights of all the people to make them entitled to enjoy justice. Peace and justice can be promoted through mutual love, inter religious understanding and co-existence. We all must think and act to achieve this goal in order to make our globe a beautiful and prosperous place to live.

A Sound education is the foundation for development in any society and the youth’s attitude towards unity, peace, education, work, democracy and all the ingredients of stability, dictates the future of every nation. Every student in every school deserves the best education that we can possibly offer them, and we must find ways to make them achieve this.
Not a single day passes without cases of bullying, violence and abuses being reported in schools in Cameroon. In the western world at large in spite of the very stringent regulations put in place, more than 50% of high scholars have been bullied or have bullied, according to a 2010 study in Los Angeles.
I am a 24 years old. After completing my degree, I didn't get job hence I volunteered myself in one of the community based organization dealing with access to justice. Till today it has been an year and have been involved in so many activities helping poor and marginalized people in Kenya in accessing justice at low cost. I have learnt much and build good relationship especially with women, youth and children such that its has been hard for me to stop doing what I do.
I am a young youth Volunteers Anti-Corruption Campaign Africa member in Uganda.
I do believe in a secure, peaceful, and fair environment. In Uganda, many wars have been fought.
Now is the time to fight against the Evil corruption in Uganda and all over the World.
The post-election violence that rocked Kenya in 2007/2008 left hundreds of thousands displaced in various parts of the country. Four years later, UN Volunteer Eric Oyuyo knows just how arduous the journey to recovery has been for the many that were displaced in and to Kisumu. Eric serves in the lake city as the coordinator for UNDP’s Post Election Violence Livelihood Recovery project with the Disaster Risk Reduction unit. Over the last three years, his work has involved working with the IDPs through government ministries and institutions to help them recover their livelihoods and move on from the PEV losses. “People think that there were no IDPs in Kisumu…there actually were very many of them, in addition to all the ones who were displaced from other towns and came back to settle here,” Eric explains as he talks about the many beneficiaries of this project. One of the groups that Eric has supported is the GREDCO self help group, an IDP group based in Muhoroni District of Kisumu County. The group comprises 15 members who were displaced during election violence in 2002 and 2007, mostly from the Rift Valley region, and who have integrated and settled in their community back in Muhoroni, Mutwala area. The group involves youth who after the violence opted not to go back to where they used to work but rather settle back home and find alternative means to meet their livelihoods needs. Given the food need in the area horticulture farming mainly planting kales became handy as a starting point to meet their household food requirement and earn income to meet other family needs. The initial target market was traders from the local market in Muhoroni town. In August 2011, the project organized for a business management skills training for IDPs in Muhoroni and members of the group were identified as part of the participants for the training. From the training ,which covered among other topics marketing, record keeping and resource mobilization, the group got their business skills improved which they put into practice after the training. The group has been able to source for other markets for kales which included two secondary schools within Muhoroni town, which gave them contracts to supply the schools with vegetables. Because of the training, the group also appreciated the need to diversify their products to include watermelon and butternuts, the latest project being local poultry keeping which they have just initiated. Currently the group has ½ acre of kales soon to be harvested, 1 acre of water melon ½ acre of butter nuts and 27 local chicken almost starting to lay. Because of the group’s hard work and impressive progress, the project has since granted their request for and provided them with a water pump which they are using to irrigate their farms. This will enable them produce vegetable and other crops all year round hence being in business throughout the year. The group has started a revolving fund scheme, with the project, through the Ministry of Trade granting them a seed capital of Ksh.60,000. Members are able to borrow from this fund up to a maximum of Ksh.10,000 and use the money strictly to finance their individual businesses. Some members have initiated their individual farms; this is the ripple effect of the group horticulture project. On average the group is making a net income of Ksh.15,000 from the sale of kales and butternuts. This is expected to increase with the coming in of water melon and poultry. With the constant follow-up from the Field coordinator and other partners in the project the group is set to be the food basket of Mutwala village in Muhoroni District of Kisumu County. For Eric, this one group is a prime example of the reason why his volunteering matters!

I'm from Sri Lanka and I took many steps to promote peace and justice.I did a project about the women in prison in Sri Lanka and I found reasons for their failures and their social background. Some of them are addicted to drugs and many black market work. I also evaluvated some facts about the election violence.
Promoting peace and justice
We need to promote peace and justice to protect everybody's human right.
especially for the second-classed-citizen such as disabled and women.
They are ignored and discriminated with no proper reason.
Promoting peace and justice will make the world a better place.
