About the Community Empowerment Programme

Community Mediation collaborates with other divisions of the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and the Arts, other Ministries and State Agencies, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Community Based Organizations CBOs and Faith Based Organizations (FBOs) to provide relevant community-based programmes. In so doing, individuals, families, groups and communities will be equipped with the necessary skills and information to cope with, manage and/or resolve conflicts and other difficult circumstances when they arise, in a positive manner that will foster sound and healthy relationships, open and honest communication and enhanced quality of family life and community relationships.
