LAUNCHING OF THE COMMUNITY JUSTICE PROJECT - By Abu Bakarr Biggie Kamara

 

A FRIENDLY REMINDER: LAUNCHING OF THE COMMUNITY JUSTICE PROJECT IN THE SIERRA LEONE COMMUNITY IN WINNIPEG (WE YONE PALAVER HUT PROJECT)

The Sierra Leone Nationals Association of Manitoba (SALNAM) invites community members to the launching of the Community Justice Project in the Sierra Leone community. SALNAM is also encouraging you as a caring member of our community to attend this very important event which takes place on: Date: Saturday, August 27, 2016. 
Time: 1:00 pm Venue: SALNAM Resource Centre,
251 Henderson Highway 
The purpose of the event is to provide information about the Community Justice project, and to create awareness about its benefits to our community. Also, the event will include the official presentation of certificates to community leaders who have successfully completed training in Conflict Resolution Skills. 

This project is the initiative of one of our own community members, Mr. Victor Kaicombey. Its primary objective is to complement the efforts of government and other stakeholders in the delivery of restorative justice for the benefits of a diverse but inclusive community in the province of Manitoba. 

Restorative Justice can be defined as a way of resolving conflicts among members of the community without resorting to the court system, and this can be achieved in a variety of settings. These are culturally based decisions.

SALNAM wholeheartedly encourages all community members to embrace this project, as it gives the opportunity for us as a community to solve our own problems or conflicts without the intervention of the court system. Cultural sensitivity is a major determinant in arriving at decisions which affects the interests and sensitivities of the affected parties. 
Arguably, we can all agree that conflicts on a range of issues are a common occurrence in the daily activities among many members in our community. Conflict resolution through this project is meant to reduce the occurrence of conflicts in our community. 

This project therefore, is very timely for a community such as ours, and it has the full backing of SALNAM as the organization is committed to building a united community in the long run. This project will contribute immensely to helping SALNAM and our community to achieve our goals and objectives of community building and development.

The trained community leaders in COACHING FOR CONFLICT RESOLUTION, AND MEDIATION SKILLS are charged with the responsibilities to serve as COMMUNITY JUSTICE WORKERS AND MEDIATORS in the Sierra Leone community. The training was done at Resolution Skills Centre, Mediation Services, Winnipeg and was sponsored by Manitoba Justice. 
These professionals are equipped with transferable skills from other professions which are useful for the challenges they will encounter as conflict resolution specialists. 

Please come and join us to launch this very important community project. The success of this project depends on your valuable support. Food and refreshments will be provided.
