Need: Looking for an African Women's Peace Group to work With

I am a graduate student from the U.S. studying social justice and international peace. I am particularly interested in the role that women play in international peace making processes. My hope is to find a women's peace group in the global South that I might come to visit and learn more about. My interest is in primarliy African women's groups, specifically in Burundi, but would be eternally grateful to any group that may be interested in helping me learn more about this.

African Woman

Hi Nicholson,
Have read your request and just wondered if you have gotten a any women groups you would learn from. Have you gotten any group yet? If Not i would encourage you Not to give up. Here in Kenya we have sucg groups which were formed during the Post election period. The women came together to help the community stop fighting. Some have already registered their groups to enable them work together as one family. Let me know if you would be interested.

Thank you very much for your message. You are the first to respond to my message, thank you! Are you involved with any groups there? I am definitely interested in learning more about these groups and hopefully arranging a visit to Kenya to work with you and other women in Kenya. Thank you so much for your response, hope to talk to you soon!
