Under the strain of poverty, unemployment and crime, social cohesion in vulnerable communities is threatened. Community leaders are expected to be the super heroes, unaffected by the exceptionally high levels of trauma faced by community members. Who takes care of them? While the Community Leadership Project's main objective seeks to equip community leaders with conflict-sensitive approaches to breaking cycles of violence operative within their communities. Through community leadership group support and training programmes on community healing, the Project aims to nurture community-based wellness.
