Training Religious Leaders to Dialogue in Myanmar
A few dozen kilometres east of Mandalay, over the lush hills of central Myanmar, there is a monastery hosting a small training centre for young peacebuilders. Supported by the Peaceful Myanmar Initiative (PMI), KAICIID’s local partner in Myanmar, the centre hosts trainings in interreligious dialogue, communication and peacebuilding for religious leaders, community leaders and young activists.
The Centre has developed a series of dialogue trainings with the aim of promoting understanding in the country through religious leaders and peacebuilders. Training in dialogue helps them deal with conflict, accept others and be a positive force for understanding and respect in their communities.
