What is Rondine?
What is the World House?
The program that gave rise and inspiration to Rondine is the World House: since 1998, it has hosted young people who come from countries where, whether currently or recently, conflict has degenerated into violent forms.
They accept to live with their “enemy”, to learn how to face their conflict and turn it into an opportunity for change.
The World House program lasts 18 months. It is an educational program where participants can enhance their ability for creative conflict transformation. This occurs at individual, relational, and social levels through conviviality, formal and non-formal education, engagement in public and institutional events, as well as involvement in volunteer activities.
At the end of the program, the young participants of the World House are empowered with the tools to drive change. They possess the ability to employ relational facilitation skills and leadership qualities in environments marked by rapid transformation, elevated complexity, and high levels of conflict—all nurtured through their experience at Rondine.
Currently, the World House hosts thirty students from twenty-five different countries in Europe, Africa, America and Asia.
