Your gift helps send grassroots peacebuilding practitioners from South Sudan and elsewhere in Africa to the Africa Peacebuilding Institute to learn skills to develop peace and address conflict and injustice in their communities.
One MCC-supported participant of the Africa Peacebuilding Institute, Samuel Deng of Rumbek, (left with his family), remembers using what he learned at as he confronted two different groups of soldiers, who had begun arguing and had guns raised in a crowded marketplace. “I asked them to put down their guns and think of their families,” Deng recalls. And slowly, the men did.
Your gift supports courageous efforts to work for peace and reconciliation in South Sudan.
