(SFC) Generations For Peace Founder and Chairman HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein and Samsung Electronics Levant President Bumsuk Hong presented the Samsung Generations For Peace Awards in Amman at the end of the Generations For Peace Advanced Training 2013. Awards were handed out in Amman’s Millennium Hotel’s Skylounge in the four categories of innovation, quality, impact and sustainability. 

“They live and work in diverse communities facing very different challenges, but they share the values of Generations for Peace – and a shared determination to take personal action to create a better future,” HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein said. “They really are an inspiration to us all. As volunteers, as role models, trainers and facilitators, they are cascading values, knowledge and skills in conflict transformation to other in their communities; supporting greater understanding, tolerance and trust across conflict divides.”

A team of “second generation” Generations For Peace volunteers in Aden, Yemen, won the Award for Innovation for the creativity of their advocacy efforts to promote understanding, respect, diversity and social inclusion. 

Sanja Angelovska, from the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, won the Award for Quality for her programme methodology with divided schools in multi-ethnic Skopje, which has segregated classes.

Rasena Mohammad from Aden founded Social Services Association, which supports marginalised people and promotes inclusion and youth empowerment, to earn the Award for Impact. 

A team of second, third, and fourth generations of Generations For Peace volunteers in Kaduna State, Nigeria, earned the Award for Sustainability for their successful conflict transformation activities in six local government areas. The group, 181 youth leaders, reached more than 5,000 children, youth and adults.

"We are extremely impressed with the growth and achievements of Generations For Peace over the last six years,” Hong said. Samsung has been a Generations For Peace partner since 2008. “The efforts of Generations For Peace Pioneers and Delegates are really demonstrating impact – promoting youth leadership, community empowerment, active tolerance, and responsible citizenship. Your work is important and is an inspiration to others. Samsung is very proud to support you and very honoured with the partnership with GFP.”
