Using Nobel Peace Prize Winners to Inspire Ghana's Youth

Wisdom Addo from Ghana is the Executive Director for West Africa Centre for Peace Foundation. Addo has over 7 years of experience working with young people in schools and communities - mobilizing and training them on peace building, conflict resolution, leadership skills, and community developments. In April, he attended Wilton Park's Next Generation African Peacebuilding: New Voices, New Networks and New Strategies where he told AllAfrica how his foundation is helping young people  gain leadership skills, and promoting peace, tolerance and respect for human rights.
