held a literacy competition in seven local high schools in and
around Kalemie, Katanga Province to encourage peace and tolerance
between tribes, religions, ethnic groups, and countries. The
grantee asked students to write poems and articles on peace and
democratic principles. Out of 1,800 entries, a committee selected
fifteen poems and articles. They used grant funds to print the
winners' articles into a pamphlet called "Education a la Paix"
(Peace Education). MEPA then distributed pamphlets in schools,
churches and places where youth congregate. Finally, they convened
a special assembly to recognize the winners for their contribution
in encouraging citizens to practice democratic and peaceful ways to
settle differences. The winners received educational prizes for
their efforts. The event received much publicity and the local
population was encouraged to work towards establishing peaceful and
tolerant atmospheres in their respective communities.
