Mediators & Peacebuilders

Our Approach

Our approach is holistic and inclusive. We believe in the innate wisdom and ability of people to learn, unlearn, and relearn. We teach people how to navigate the dynamics of work systems, of environmental influences and of relationships. We cater to all styles of learning; visual, auditory and kinaesthetic, as it enhances our impact of content delivery. Our sessions are participatory and interactive, with an emphasis on mutual learning.  

Our goal is to create safe and non-judgmental spaces where individuals and organizations can come together to learn and evolve. We strive to be as flexible, adaptive, and creative as needed, to help everyone get the most out of our workshops and sessions. 

Our team’s areas of expertise include designing, and facilitating workshops in personal transformation, conflict resolution, child safety awareness in schools, and sports coaching facilities/academies, safeguarding of sportspersons in sport and fitness centers,  stress management, work-life balance, parent education, inter-faith bridge building, teacher training and work-force development.

We work with a diverse range of clients, including schools, corporates/MNC's, and sports and fitness academies. We understand the unique needs and challenges of each of these organizations and have tailored our services accordingly.

Our Mission & Vision

At Mediators & Peacebuilders, our mission is to empower individuals and communities to create positive and lasting change through the development and execution of programs in a variety of fields. We start with foundational aspects and build on those blocks. Our approach is holistic and looks beyond the obvious areas, such as discipline in classroom management, to focus on effective communication, building team spirit and high self-esteem, and self-awareness and growth. Our training workshops work with teachers, students, leaders (admin), support staff, and parents to create more productive and well-managed classrooms.

MAP envisions equipping individuals in different environments with the tools necessary to create safe spaces that are conflict-free, enhancing productivity, boosting morale, and promoting a sense of belongingness. When people feel that they have the right skills to resolve conflict and even transform it, they become more confident in their roles and assets to their organizations. Our focus on conflict resolution and management provides individuals and organizations with the tools and knowledge they need to create safe and productive environments.

Awareness is a keyword in bringing about change. In the area of child safety, safeguarding of students, sportspersons-children, and young adults, awareness plays an integral role in prevention and handling of abuse. The physical, mental, and emotional safety of all students and sportspersons, young and old, is non-negotiable. We believe that schools, school-related environments, such as buses, hostels, and all sporting environments such as coaching and training facilities, gyms, and fitness classes need to be made safe. When leaders (coaches, physios, trainers, instructors, principals, and parents) are made aware of potential risky situations, places or potentially risky persons, and knowledge and awareness is shared with athletes, incidences of abuse become minimum or even totally removed in the best case scenarios.

Whether working with schools, corporates/MNCs, or sports academies, our goal is to promote a culture of mutual respect, peace, and understanding. We aim to reduce prejudices arising from stereotypes and create safe spaces to discuss and learn how to build tolerance and minimize differences and discrimination that arise because of different faiths, gender, race, and culture. We are committed to building customized and effective solutions that meet the unique needs of our clients. We are constantly innovating and evolving to ensure that we stay at the forefront of the field, creating more peaceful and respectful environments.
