Thanks to the efforts of enthusiastic siblings, the Peace Education Program (PEP) has been integrated into a college in Jacqueville, Côte d’Ivoire, giving students a sense of inner strength and hope as their country heals from social unrest.
The Food for People program is empowering parents to save money and time so they can help their families get ahead.
Inmate David Agbley writes from Accra’s Senior Correctional Facility: “From the day I started this Peace Education Program my life has totally changed. I now have peace in me.”

The Peace Education Program is growing in Bouaké, Côte d’Ivoire’s second largest city, a place still scarred from its part in the outbreak of the 2002 rebellion that resulted in years of fighting and loss of life.
In August, The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) sponsored a conference that brought together hundreds of chiefs, kings, and government officials in the West African nation of Côte d’Ivoire to consider the theme of “Traditional Wisdom in Service to Peace.” In the days since, several of the attending dignitaries provided feedback on what they learned at the conference and their hopes for the future as Côte d’Ivoire recovers from years of civil conflict.
