Sponsor a Peacebuilder

“Our gun is now prayer. It is a gun you can carry with confidence because it won’t hurt anybody. We can take our gun with us even through the checkpoints, because our gun is spiritual.”

Angelina Atyam, SPI participant and founder of Concerned Parents Association, Lira, Uganda

People around the world are working – some quietly and some not so quietly – for peace in their communities. Many come to EMU’s Summer Peacebuilding Institute (SPI) to learn skills and share ideas.

The 14th annual Summer Peacebuilding Institute will be held from May 4 to June 12, 2009. . Three 7-day sessions and one 5-day session, each with six intensive courses running concurrently, are on the schedule. An interactive approach is used in the classroom to draw upon the rich experiences of the participants as well as the instructors.

Give the gift of peace by sponsoring a peacebuilder! If this is a gift to someone else, we will send you a lovely gift card so that you can let them know of your gift.
