Women Building Peace in Oldham

October 4, 2014 | Nick Taylor

The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace’s ‘Women Building Peace’ project launched its first session of a new course this week entitled Peace building & Active Citizenship.

The course was held in Oldham, Greater Manchester and proved a hit with local women who committed to exploring approaches to conflict resolution and celebrating difference, dialogue and PEACE!

The course was delivered by the Foundation project lead Paveen Yaqub and was a joint partnership venture with Fatima Women’s Association (1) and Coppice Community Centre.

Fifteen women attended their first session of a six week course and are looking forward to attending the second session next week.

Pictures from the course are included with the permission of the women attending the course:
