In the 21st century Africa, people are thought how to make money, how to be better managers and great entrepreneurs, how to break cycle of poverty but less is mentioned on how to kickstart the peace spectrum.

We must propel Transformative leadership that will work collaboratively across divides both in the community and marketplace. Through Soulace Peace Academy we stem violent conflict through by way of our train the trainer, advocacy and thematic training session. We address conflict wherever we find it.
