Young people in low-income districts of Lima face high rates of violence and a lack of security. Prodiálogo, Prevención y Resolución de Conflictos (ProDiálogo) engages young people in the use of urban art, dialogue and collaboration as strategies to prevent violence. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance peace and security in Peru. ProDiálogo’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
