Presenting Legacy International: An NGO Dedicated to Conflict Resolution, Peace-Building and Intercultural Exchanges for a Better Tomorrow
Please tell us about your programs in Democracy and Civic Education, Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution, Leadership Development and Community Development.
Legacy International specializes in strengthening civil society by conducting exchanges and trainings, which center around skill-building and education. The four main areas of work include civic action, conflict prevention and reconciliation, leadership development, and community development. To this end, Legacy has hosted 145 inbound and outbound citizen exchange delegations, international conferences, training events, and training-of-trainers programs, including more than 20 major projects funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
Legacy’s portfolio includes projects involving majority-Muslim countries, and non-Muslim countries with significant Muslim populations, such as Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia/Abkhazia, Indonesia, Israel and Palestine, the Kyrgyz Republic, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan. Many projects aim to build bridges between different sectors and stakeholders — religious and civic leaders, educators, media, NGO, and government officials.
