Posted in: , ,

Nigerian musician, Innocent '2face' Idibia, has just introduced the ‘2face Peace Awards’ which aims to promote peace and support young Nigerians involved in peace projects in their communities. In a press release, 2face says the award will select that six winners in the following categories;

1. Women-led Peace Building,
2. Youth Peace Building,
3. Peace Building in the environment,
4. Projects on urban violence and community peace building,
5. the use of technology or Social Media for peace building and
6. Mediation directed at reducing violence against women and girls.

The report indicates that a N1million cash award would be presented to each winner, along with opportunities to attend key global peace summits and exchange programmes in 2014. 2Face will mentor the winners, assist them in sourcing funds and add his financial donation for them to continue with the peace projects in their communities.

According to the Nation Online;

Idibia said that almost a quarter of the world lived in areas affected by military or civil conflicts.
He, however, noted that there were young people who were busy building bridges across communities.
“These young people are mostly unnoticed but you will find them working hard in various places, educating people and helping to manage conflicts and promoting peace.
“They have become community leaders in peace building, reconciliation and post -conflict reconstruction, thereby establishing themselves as the next generation of leaders.
“As we march towards Nigeria’s centenary celebrations in 2014, more than anything else, we choose to celebrate these young unsung heroes, who are active in their communities, promoting peace.
“We want to celebrate them through the ‘2face Peace Awards’’, ‘’ Idibia told NAN.

The award judges would assess applicants, based on impact of their projects, innovativeness and sustainability overtime. The winners will be announced during the UN Peace Day event, scheduled for September 21. This is indeed a great initiative.

You can be part of the process by signing a petition, volunteering and nominating qualified young people at the The 2face Reach-Out Foundation website.

This is a great initiative. Well done 2Face.

  2. Thanks for your intriguing article. One other problem is that mesothelioma is generally brought on by
    the breathing of fibres from asbestos fiber, which
    is a extremely dangerous material. It truly is commonly seen among personnel in the building
    industry who may have long exposure to asbestos.
    It can be caused by residing in asbestos covered buildings for years
    of time, Genetic makeup plays a huge role, and some consumers are more vulnerable to the risk
    in comparison with others.
