AMMAN — Generations For Peace (GFP) and the Norwegian embassy signed on Monday a three-year partnership agreement to support peace-building programmes in the Middle East and North Africa, according to a GFP statement.

The embassy’s support amounts to approximately JD850,000 over the period 2014-2016.

“The embassy’s support will enable us to expand our reach in the region, training and mentoring our volunteer youth leaders to use sport, arts, advocacy and dialogue as tools for transforming conflict in their local communities, and passing their skills and knowledge onto others to create lasting positive change,” HRH Prince Feisal, GFP founder and chairman, said in the statement.

“Supporting peace building is a priority for the Norwegian government,” the statement quoted Norwegian Ambassador Sissel Breie as saying.
