In February 2016, children play at the Kamesa Child-Friendly Space in Musaga in Bujumbura in Burundi. It's one of 37 Child Friendly Spaces UNICEF set up with partners.

‘Learning for Peace’ is a global education and advocacy initiative to develop social cohesion, resilience, and security by strengthening educational practices and policies in conflict-affected contexts.
This initiative is a partnership between UNICEF, the Government of the Netherlands, governments of 14 other countries and key supporters.

Learning for Peace works to:

  • Increase education in peacebuilding and conflict-reduction policies, analyses and implementation.
  • Increase institutional capacities to provide conflict-sensitive education. 
  • Train children, parents, teachers and other duty bearers to prevent, reduce and cope with conflict and to promote peace. 
  • Increase access to quality and relevant conflict-sensitive education that contributes to peace. 
  • Contribute to the generation and use of evidence and knowledge in policies and programming related to education, conflict and peacebuilding.

Globally, 14 countries have participated.
