During Covid times, communication is critical.
Interfaith Peacemaker Teams (IP Teams), located in some the most marginalized communities in the world cannot communicate during Covid lockdowns. They have no money to buy cell-phone data. Our highest priority right now, is to provide funds for cell-phone data for IP Teams leaders. We are negotiating with phone companies for a reduced rate. Sri Lanka has already got a deal.
The numbers of IP Teams are expanding. We need to:
* Hire community organizers in Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Uganda to strengthen and expand the IP Teams
* Conduct trainings in the four countries as well as DRC (Congo), Rwanda, India and Brazil, as soon as Covid restrictions are removed.
We are building a peaceforce. This is possible, only to the extent that there are funds.
