Mediators & Advocates of Peace (LAMPAIX)
A non-governmental, not-for-profit organization, Mediators & Advocates of Peace (LAMPAIX) is devoted to the cause of building sustainable peace for development, and full enjoyment of human rights.
We are trained mediators, conciliators and peacebuilders, who are also experienced professionals from all walks of life.
Incorporated in 2005 under ‘Part C’- Registered Trustees of the Companies and Allied Matters Act of Nigeria, LAMPAIX was launched in April 2005, with lectures delivered by accomplished practitioners on different aspects of peace building and conflict management. These lectures have been published in a book entitled ‘Peacebuilding Through Mediation,’ which is a veritable reference material for all practitioners and researchers. Many students of higher institutions have found it invaluable in their research.
The efforts of LAMPAIX was lauded by the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federation of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, in a communication on the 19th June 2006, while acknowledging reception of a copy of that publication. The Foreword was written by the past Director-General and Chief Executive of the Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR), Dr Sunday Ochoche.
Pursuant to our commitment of promoting good governance, integrity building, transparency and accountability through radio and TV programs, our signature Lamp of Peace Program was created. We have engaged in other projects such as activism against violence, collaboration with stakeholders, among others.
CARRY ON THE LAMP OF PEACE!
