As global violence surges in the form of humanitarian crises, racial injustices and political oppression, it is important to highlight the work being done in local communities around the world to transform lives and communities through non-violent means.

Accepted practices are being broken which increases the likelihood of tension escalating to violence. But a violent response to increasing economic pressures and social tensions is not inevitable, as the Badya Centre for Integrated Development, a local peacebuilding organisation from South Kordofan, is well aware.
