The laid down work-plan have been embedded under an umbrella titled “Hand-Shake Initiative”, incorporating three segments:
- Community Based Rehabilitation
- Voice-out Naija
- Peace Ambassadorial Award
COMMUNITY BASED REHABILITATION
This aspect of the Peace Campaign will be in phases. The first phase is a community dialogue where we go to communities facing serious Peace challenges and find out the root cause and possible solutions for these challenges, from one Local Government to the other sensitizing people, carrying out Peace talks so that people can have a reorientation; it would require us sitting down with the people involved and be mediators of Peace. We also intend to hold Seminars on Peace.
The second phase is the community based rehabilitation proper, we have partnered with the Rivers State Government Amnesty Board and the youths that are involved in this violence will be sent for rehabilitation with the government in close monitoring by our legal team. Then the families affected by this violence would be compensated to help manage their losses/damages.
The third phase is going to be a construction of a high class Community Rehabilitation Centre offering therapies for addictions.
It is a platform where every member of the community or heads of communities can lodge complaints or make request concerning what troubles or bother them in terms of security and well being.
For example, I live in Iboloji Estate Rumuigbo Community and we have a poor road network, I reach out to Voice-out Naija with my plight and they in turn reach the relevant bodies to take care of this lack of infrastructure.
Example 2; if there are certain touts in the community that come to extort money from shop owners in the name of the Local Government and this complaint is lodged. CCC is backed up by experienced and seasoned Legal Practitioners from our legal department that will take this matter to the highest authority possible and make sure such acts are stopped. An investigation would be carried out to ascertain the authenticity and urgency of the complaints and immediate action would be taken and when the necessary actions have been made. The Legal team will always be in contact with the complainant to make sure things are back to normal.
PEACE AMBASSADORIAL AWARD
This award lasts for duration of a year, it has three categories therewith.
The first category is for the youths which will consist of male & female awardees.
The second category would be for elders in the community that have achieved great feats in the area of Peace.
The third category goes to corporate bodies involved in Peace building around this region.
The criteria for this award is going to be fashioned out by the CCC and made known to the general public via our social network handles and advert platforms after the launch of the Peace Project.
This aspect of the Peace Campaign Project will be initiated in 2017.
