The memorandum was signed on behalf of Generation for Peace by its Chairman Dr Muhannad Al-Arabiyat, and on behalf of Al-Ghad by Director-General Ala Al-Qassim.

Under the memo, Al-Ghad will shed light on the message of Generations for Peace and its role, in cooperation with its volunteers, in implementing its various programs aimed at consolidating a culture of peace.

Arabiyat expressed his appreciation for the partnership. He said “At Generations for Peace, we are working on building fruitful partnerships in order to deliver our message to a wide base of local and global audiences, and to all stakeholders involved in our business.”

“Our partnership with a reputable and reliable local media agency, like Al-Ghad, comes within the framework of our continuous endeavor to focus on the impact we are making in the field of peacebuilding, which contributes to multiplying it and leaving a larger imprint at the level of societies,” he added.

Qassim said the partnership with Generations for Peace, “provides an opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment to improving local communities.”

He said both institutions share a “common goal,” which “is to change the lives of societies for the better by increasing communication between their members, strengthening their bonds, and supporting young people to become leaders of change for the better within their societies.”

“All initiatives adopted by Generations for Peace reflect the positive energy of the community, as well as achieving success stories in transforming various types of conflicts into points of convergence between young leaders who will be the change makers in the future, in addition to promoting the values of tolerance and responsible citizenship,” Qassim explained.

He asserted that Al-Ghad newspaper “always believes that dialogue is the best practice to confront violence and conflict, which is at the heart of the organization’s work.”

Generations for Peace is a non-profit organization founded by HH Prince Faisal bin Al-Hussein, and works to consolidate a culture of peace in the world at the grass-roots level to transform conflicts and disputes into sustainable peace.
