The Dag Hammarskjöld 'Messengers of Peace' Training Programme is run by the Foundation.  The objectives of this bi-annual two-week training programme are:  

  1. To spread information and knowledge of conflict resolution at different levels of society in Africa and the world;
  2. To promote a culture of peaceful conflict resolution among people.

In addition to this two-week training programme, the Mindolo Ecumenical Foundation (MEF), which executes the programme, offers a three-month Peace Certificate covering conflict analysis, conflict resolution, human rights, training of trainers, mediation skills, restorative justice and non-violent strategies. A nine-month Peace Certificate in conflict resolution, peace-building, computer training and democracy is also offered.
