Partnerships in Appalachia

In Appalachia, we have the good fortune of partnering with several groups that do amazing work for families in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the country The Kids Central programs in particular offer Head Start services to low-income families in the area. Martine Courvoisier, a member of our team in Appalachia, volunteers at two of their centers several days a week.

Artisan of Peace in a Classroom in Bangui

On March 13th, the organizers of the Tapori group in Bangui visited a class at the St. Francis school in the Fouh neighborhood of Bangui.

They were welcomed there by one of the teachers, who has 68 students registered in her class. That morning there were only 60 present. The school has only been back for three weeks now. The first week there were just 30 students present, but little by little the rows have been filling in.


Wherever men and women are condemned to live in extreme poverty, human rights are violated.
To come together to ensure that these rights be respected is our solemn duty.
