A concern for the CAR

The recent events and the social movements across North Africa, the Middle East and ongoing social unrest in CAR (Central African Republic) have highlighted the emergence of a new generation of leaders that yearn for social and peaceful change. They long for meaningful work but don't know how to focus their energy and effectively impact their societies in the time of crisis. They shall see the creative chaos of this time as a great gift and opportunity to rethink, reconnect, reinvent and yearn for Democratic and peaceful change. If their authentic style of community organizing could be matched with the self-awareness, mindfulness and compassion practices of meditation, it could revolutionize how they affect social change.

Human IS Right is concerned about the ongoing social unrest in the CAR and is calling on present and future leaders of Africa to rethink strategic change in leadership and distribution of scarce resources for the benefit of their populations.

There is need to:
- Bring young leaders and change makers from various parts of Africa especially areas that are prone to conflict together.
- Provide a forum for networking and exchange of experiences by fostering mutual dialogue and share visions to manifest tangible peaceful changes in their communities.
- Provide these future leaders with the tools to inner peace, self-development, peaceful strategic change leadership and meditation that helps strengthen their mediation skills and prevent conflict.
- Help them acquire Leadership skills through mindfulness, self-discipline and compassion.
