Trainings designed and given by PATRIR highly professional and competent personnel actually work !
I've been privileged for having attended trainings given by PATRIR both in Romania and at the European Peace University in Austria. Now, back to my home country, Lebanon, I have been putting into practice everything that I was learned in terms of good practice, models, frameworks for analyzing conflicts and for designing interventions and peacebuilding projects.
PATRIR's staff are living and being the change they are promoting in their trainings and all over the world, which makes their high quality work very valuable and much much needed in a field where war-making and warfare-building still prevail.
In my own mind, PATRIR, has already won this year's prize !!!
Consultant on peacebuilding and conflict transformation
I have worked for a number of years as one of the Gandhi Peace Libray librarians within the Peace Action Training and Reseach Institute of Romania (PATRIR).
Without any doubt I can say that PATRIR is a life changing experience for anybody that comes across its people and wonderful resources. I have seen so many people being transformed from ordinary people into extraordinary peace workers doing amazing work all over the world. Without exaggerating, I can say that it is an oasis of hope, light and fresh new ideas in a world suffocated by consumerism and selfishness.
I genuinely wish there was a PATRIR in every city of the world.
As President of FOYA Cyprus I have had the opportunity of working closely with PATRIR. PATRIR is truly an organization deserving of this prize as not only have they been involved in promoting the cause of peace in Romania but their International Training Programs are of high quality and caliber.
All the best.
I am very happy to see PATRIR nominated for the World Vision Peace Prize!
What is absolutely striking about PATRIR, from my point of view, is the fact that it has the supreme ability of gathering around the most wonderful, passionate and committed people. They work together beautifully and each and every one of them I have had the chance to meet gives me the feeling that they are not made for here, as their goals in life and passion seem to be more than us, mortals, are used to! :) Thus, I admire them greately!
I have had the chance to volunteer in some of their events and participate in others - it has each time been a beautiful experience and I am grateful for that.
Hoping that they will receive the award, as I personally have the conviction they deserve it,
PATRIR is a great organization. Passioned people that want to change their communities. I have been volunteering for them few times and their attitude impressed me. Even though most of their actions are internationally, they have good and strong local projects as well, focused on peace and development education.
Wish them the best and a good work, because they have proved that world can be changed and peace can be done.
I've met the PATRIR team at a seminar meant to Celebrate Diversity and Multiculturalism in Cluj Napoca.
At this seminar I was profoundly impressed by the commitment, dedication and professionalism of the PATRIR team.
I am sincerely supporting PATRIR's nomination for the Peace Prize.
As a partner in Glocal Tour project they are doing amazing work, specially Paula Tonea and Stafania Sabo. You have my full support. For all others... PATRIR is great to work with. You can see and fill the spirit!

I must say that since i became associated with PATRIR,my knowledge and information in the area of peacebuilding, conflict transformation and post war recovery has increased and improved tremendously.
The time i spent physically at PATRIR did not only improve my learning but enabled me establish networks and friends that i surely believe will last for a very very long time. I wish to say that i am sincerely grateful to all friends and staff of PATRIR and strongly recommended PATRIR for the award!
Keep the flag flying!1Kudos
