UK: The CAF Venturesome team select PCi for Giving Tuesday

Peaceful Change initiative was selected by the CAF Venturesome team, the social investment team at Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), as their beneficiary in the UK as part of this year’s ‘Giving Tuesday’, a global day of giving to charities and social organisations. All CAF staff are encouraged to volunteer and fundraise on this day, which in 2020 is Tuesday 1 December. One of the team is running 50km from CAF’s Kent office to their London office to raise funds from their network for PCi.  PCi is grateful for the support and wish them the best of luck on Tuesday 1 December.

PCi’s senior Peacebuilding Adviser Raj Bhari has been invited by BELONG, the cohesion and integration network, to support Shared Ground, a new pilot programme for the UK. The programme will build the capacity, skills and confidence for practitioners, and all those who work closely alongside residents and in neighbourhoods, to work more effectively in situations where there is conflict and tension. The course will be designed with input from the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation and Peaceful Change initiative. Both organisations bring substantial expertise in working in situations where there are community tensions and conflict.
