- 2009, Christian Romeo NJIA was trained as Trainer & facilitator on the UN Methodology called: “Community Capacity Enhancement (CCE)” to conduct in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation research & Community Dialogue in various parts of the country for resolution of conflicts & social coercion.
- Despite its unquestionable effort to contribute towards the welfare of the population, the International Solidarity has mostly benefited only from the generous support of the Muslim community.
- Considering that its main objective was never about religion but about people, In 2007 the International Solidarity due to the lack of support from other category of funders decided to enter into partnership with a local NPO called Shadows of Hope Development Organisation & Training College to add value to that organisation's work, whilst making better use of their know-how.
- The Shadows of hope has grown very big today following our advices executing our projects all over the KZN Province.
- We are still working together with Shadows of Hope Development Organisation & Training College mostly as Project Consultants, and Mentors.
The International Solidarity is actually writing an essay on how to cut down the crime in South Africa through promotion of Moral & Civic Education.
