Phase 1 of the SCP project was funded for two years, and launched by the Australian High Commissioner, Mr Nick Warner, on 24 February 2000. Phase 1 of the project comprised a variety of community-based peace-building activities, as well as organisational development and training for Leitana Nehan that provided invaluable capacity-building for staff and volunteers as project workers and managers. The main peace-building objective of the SCP project, as outlined in the proposal (LNWDA and IWDA 1999), was to …strengthen the ability of women, communities, community leaders and Leitana Nehan trainers to address violence in Bougainville in general and violence against women in particular.
The latter resulted from a proposal submitted to Oxfam and Community Aid Abroad, which together contributed K8,000 to cover costs. The workshop aimed to help young people identify problems in their communities and the local resources available to solve them. Some chiefs also attended, and the workshop was facilitated by five staff from Community Aid Abroad, including Julie Eagles, Stuart Watson, Anne David, Reiner Tegetmeier and Rebecca Fleisher. Starting in 1996, Leitana Nehan worked with Theresa Postma from IWDA on a project entitled ‘Working Towards Peace’.
