The Centre for Peace and Reconciliation (CPR) is a lead provider of Professional Counseling, Dispute and Conflict Resolution and life management services.
We are a Christian organization with ‘Reconciliation’ at the heart of our activities. We seek to promote reconciliation of man to himself; man to others; man to his environment; and finally, man to His God and Creator.
We have taken up the ministry of Reconciliation so that, through us, many people will come to the saving knowledge of God and also rise out of their emotional and psychological challenges to be all that God created them to be.
The Centre for Peace and Reconciliation was established because we live in a world where unmet psycho-social, emotional, and human needs are on the rise. Many people are unhappy or dissatisfied with life. Intra and Inter-personal and social conflicts have become urgently rising issues that are damaging family structures, causing unquantifiable destruction to development, and spreading a cycle of violence in our society.
The complexity of life, loss, pain, hurt, greed, and grief are some of the identified reasons behind intra and interpersonal conflicts. Crises, stress together with poor coping mechanisms, fear, anger, anxiety and sometimes, depression are some factors that fuel irritations. These factors also blur the ability to understand, thereby contributing to a breakdown in the wellbeing of victims and triggering disputes and conflicts. These Intra and Interpersonal triggers require immediate attention.
Challenges at work, in leadership, socio-economic and political difficulties constitute some of the heart-breaking damages and agony caused by dysfunctions within the family. Children who are exposed to the cycle of conflict, grow up to become susceptible to being conflict prone adults. We are faced with a growing need for problem solving approaches historically unprecedented. We can see how people who are hurt (and still hurting), perpetuate the cycle of hurt, which is the root of several ills of our society.
As a result of this, we are positioning ourselves to bring healing not only to individuals, but, to the society and support leaders in our time and also nurture the next generation of leaders especially in Africa.
We help bring a lasting solution to these problems through either individual or group counseling, mediation, and other alternative dispute and conflict resolution processes, research and training, and other customized workplace services and community outreaches.
