Need: Funding Needed, for Power of Reconciliation training, Mumbai India, February 2011

Dear Friend,

My name is Karambu Ringera. I work with an organization called International Peace Initiatives (IPI: www.ipeacei.org). IPI works with communities to mitigate the impact of disease (HIV/AIDS), poverty and violence as these affect women and children. The goal of our work is to empower women and children to overcome challenges related to these issues.

I have been working hard to gain more skills to bring to my communities with regard to peacebuilding and reconciliation. As you may know, my country experience post-election violence in 2008 and many have not healed since. Our coalition government is limping along and I feel we need to work hard to prevent a recurrent of violence in 2012. The role of women in changing the conflict scenario in my country is critical and giving them skills to make this happen is urgent.

I have been invited to attend a Power of Reconciliation training in Mumbai from February 8-13th offered by Satyana Institute. This training offers a great opportunity to learn how to bridge the gender gap in our communities. I will then bring these skills back to my trainings in Kenya. I have done some training hours in South Africa and need this Mumbai training (and one more) to complete my required hours so I can be a certified facilitator. Then I can do these trainings in my country among others.

The goal of this message is to request you to please consider supporting me/linking me with organizations that can support me to enable me attend this important training.

I have already raised $500 and need $1,500 to enable me participate at this event.
Your help with this regard will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this message.

Blessings and peace.

Karambu
