Pazala was awarded a 50,000 USD Peace Project Grant by The Journalists and Writers Foundation (JFW) in Turkey. The project’s goal was to design a methodology that helped Peruvian high school students develop intercultural and critical citizenship skills through the understanding of the importance, causes, events, and actors of the Peruvian Internal Armed Conflict. The project took place in five private and public high schools from three regions in Peru. Ten teachers were trained to teach the contents and perform a series of peace fostering activities with students. The project ended with a student retreat in which students were taught how to design a social project and were asked to implement them in their communities.
