July 12, 2017: Special Appeal for Peace Summit in Senegal
Your gift on July 12 will bring communities in the Casamance region of Senegal together to push the peace process forward--through a Peace Summit this August facilitated by experienced Senegalese peacebuilders.
Today only: Gifts to this project are matched at 50% by GlobalGiving, while funds last. $20 = $30, and $100 = $150!
The people of Senegal’s Casamance region have endured landmines, wartime drug trafficking, and raids on their villages: the fallout of a war for independence against Senegalese government forces. After 35 years of conflict, a partial ceasefire is holding and the time is ripe for peace negotiations. Together, we are working to build an inclusive peace process, from the ground up. Learn more
