Innovation
What makes your idea unique?

The Information and communication technologies,especially the internet are an extremely cost-effective tool to make human rights information dissemination and to stimulate mental health of young people.

Using internet website, Ipeace Project tool for educational and mental health purposes is particularly appropriate for targeting population in conflict affected area which may lack access to other forms of media and information but have to become increasingly connected via internet.

This system will also allow more flexibility than traditional mass educational system efforts because information can be adapted quickly as the context changes.

Finally, monitoring is embedded in the system and will serve as a feedback loop so that changes can be made to increase the popularity or effectiveness of courses.
