Educational Empowerment for Peace: Transformative Impacts of Lectures on Former Gang Members in Mogadishu

Burhan Hassan Warsame

Abstract: This article explores the transformative potential of educational interventions in conflict - affected regions, focusing on Mogadishu, Somalia. Through an in - depth case study of the Ciyaal Weero Gang, previously associated with violence and crime, the research investigates how lectures have catalyzed positive change within this context. Drawing on qualitative analysis and perspectives of lecturers and former gang members, the study unveils how educational efforts have shifted attitudes, behaviors, and perceptions, fostering reintegration into society and active participation in peacebuilding initiatives. By shedding light on the empowerment and reconciliation facilitated by education, the findings underscore the importance of adopting a positive lens in understanding transformation and offer insights into the broader applicability of educational approaches in similar challenges worldwide.
