Peer Exchange of African Communities for Empowerment – Call for Support

P.E.A.C.E is a Network and platform for peer exchange of scientific, academic and societal issues concerning Africans aimed at empowering Africans, giving back to the Community (GiBaCo) and fighting “Brain Drain” in our African Communities.

PEACE, a Pan-African Network is to launch its first networking Centre in Post-colonial Cameroon. The aim for this Centre is to create awareness, empowerment, facilitate and enhance networking within our Communities.

The PEACE Centre, located at our premises in New Town Limbe is soon to go functional with a number of established facilities to go along with it. Being an independent network, we are embarking on sustainable projects for self-support, promote growth and maintain a strong foothold in Africa

Our network promotes finding African solutions to problems arising in the continent and Africans in the Diaspora, knowledge transfer, information dissemination through workshops, seminars, conferences, publishing of research materials, inter-networking of media and communication streams on African and Africa pertinent issues. The PEACE Centre is open to the public.

A good number of these projects will include:
·An academic center, which will serve and act as a scientific and research multipurpose center.
·An internet facility network of computers to aid the various activities of the academic center
·Lodging which will be strictly opened only to guests who come to visit and assist the organization.
·A snack bar, which will serve as a refreshing corner for our guests.
·An Artelier and Arts-Gallery to promote and empower young and rising African artists.

In spite of these aforementioned projects, we stick to our main focus and priority, which is to actively promote the African heritage, analysing and finding alternative proposals for solutions to issues in and about Africa in order to create and build the continent of our dreams.

That is why as a Network we are calling on the public as a whole and Africans in general to donate to PEACE.

Furthermore, you might already know that we don’t ask for funding from institutions that are not African. It is a principle, which is challenging because so far, only little financial assistance has triggered into our coffers. But we have been able to abide to it.

Therefore we need funds to be able to survive in the long run, build our infrastructure and shape our destiny. As such we are pleading for your support to grow and stay strong. Every donation channeled to us will be for the development of PEACE.

30 Jahre ISD

Die Initiative Schwarze Menschen in Deutschland (ISD) wird 30 Jahre alt. Wir gratulieren herzlich und freuen uns auf spannende Veranstaltungen angesichts des Jubiläums.

Aus der Ankündigung:

“30ig Jahre ISD heißt drei Jahrzehnte, in denen die Interessen und politischen Anliegen Schwarzer Menschen in Deutschland vertreten und sichtbar gemacht wurden. Anlässlich dieses Jubiläums fließen in den Gründerstädten des Vereins Frankfurt/Wiesbaden die Ergebnisse und Schnittstellen zwischen Empowerment-, Bildungs- und Informationsarbeit in einem Rahmenprogramm zusammen.  Indem Schwarze Menschen aus ihrer eigenen Perspektive ihre Lebensrealität und Geschichte durch gegenwartsbezogenere Arbeiten sichtbar machen, wird ihr Recht auf Teilhabe und Partizipation in Deutschland zur gelebten Realität.”
