The Women & Peace project started its activity by collecting data from all 8 provinces and 24 districts through a survey questioner. The data was collected through survey forms. The criteria for selecting peace activists in the area includes role of the activist in conflict resolution at the local and community levels, their knowledge from the laws and rules and regulations, and women rights as well as their position in the target areas. A comprehensive database was developed for Identifying and registering women peacebuilders active in conflict resolution in target areas. This database will be used for this and any future projects or activity that requires active participation of women at the community, local, provincial and national levels.
To start provincial workshops two manuals were developed, one for the trainer and another for women peacebuilders. These manuals will be primarily used to provide local peacebuilders with tools and techniques for approaching conflict in their communities. The Peacebuilder Manual provides activities and exercises to accompany each section of the Trainer Manual. Since our target group is mainly consisted of women with less or no education, we therefore used more illustration and easier language in this manual to make it suitable for this level of readers.
