Published: October 16, 2013

KOMPAK recently offered a training in active nonviolence to youth of all religions in Batuplat, an Indonesian village in West Timor.

KOMPAK—who works with youth because they are often used as targets or proxies in a conflict, have high mobility, and communicate with their own family members and neighborshas trained more than 800 youth in active nonviolence throughout the East Nusa Tenggara Province.

Through the two-day training, the Muslim, Catholic, and Protestant youth learned to recognize and analyze interreligious conflicts and the ways to build peace. They were also trained in ways to resist violence using nonviolence.
