Africa Regional Fellowships "Be the Peace Agent"

Discover the Treasure of Inner & Outer Peace from Africa



The simplification of life is one of the steps to inner peace. A persistent simplification will create an inner and outer well-being that places harmony in one's life. Come and experience that African simplification of inner and outer peace.

After successfully organizing two major events, last September, in Kenya and Nigeria, Peace Revolution will come back to Africa to organize Regional fellowships for the first time in Africa. Each regional fellowship will bring together 25 young leaders to learn and exchange during three day retreat. Each fellowship will be an opportunity to engage African young leaders and support their growth as change-makers in peace-building in their communities. The fellowships will include activities, meditation and workshops providing the participants with new skills and perspectives in peace work. Its main focus shall be on youth, peace and self-development.
