The training which is supported by the Gamey and Gamey Group also aims at creating awareness about Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) at the community level.

Gbledi is the home of Afadjato, the highest mountain in Ghana.

The training coincides with the maiden Afadjato Mediation Expedition being organised by ADR Daily to enrich the mediation skills of mediators and other professionals who would trek the mountain next Saturday, August 24, to undertake various mediation exercises.

In addition to the training, a mediation clinic would be held in Gbledi to enable community members to submit disputes for resolution by a team of professional mediators.

He remains optimistic that the chiefs would, after the training, be able to effectively resolve community conflicts in a way that ensure sustainable peace among community members.
