WHAT EVENT OR PROJECT OR PROGRAMME OR CAMPAIGN THAT NEEDS SUPPORT 

We always have initiatives that need funding and/or other forms of support. 

We are currently appealing to you to support 12 ways of creating and sustaining peace for those in need in Africa, the Festive Season December 2019 to January 2020.

 

 

Bringing Peace to people in need this Festive Season for only £5

Please help meet basic life-sustaining needs for those in need.

Being in pressing needs of basic essentials of life could mean that you have no food, no education, no income, no sanitation, no health and no capacity to function as human beings.

Your Gift of Peace could mean helpful difference to those in pressing needs of survival.

 

=> WHAT IS A GIFT OF PEACE?

 

CENFACSWinter Gift of Peace to Africa is

 

  • A CENFACS Wintry Gift Appeal initiative to support people living in poverty in Africa
  • A festive life-sustaining support that helps reduce poverty and bring sustainable peace
  • A festive life-giving and changing gift to acknowledge and do something about poverty over the Festive period, which is also an occasion to trans-give and think of those who are not as fortunate as others, those who don’t have peace because of poverty, particularly the ones living in the developing regions of the world like Africa.    

 

=> GIFTS OF PEACE: 12 WAYS OF BRINGING AND MEETING WISHES OF PEACE OVER FESTIVE TIME

 

In total, there are twelve selected Gifts of Peace to wish and donate over the Festive period, which are: climate, change, freedoms, security, togetherness, sustainability, recovery, democracy, friendship, justice, inclusion and creation. 

These selected Gifts highlight poverty issues that the majority of people in need in Africa face in their daily life. 

We have briefly illustrated below what a donation of for example £5 as a gift can do for each of the twelve Gifts of Peace

11) £5 AS A GIFT OF INCLUSION

To enable the poor people to take part in needs assessment workshops and surveying programme so that their needs are better included and recognised and their poverty problems get tackled; as well as providing them with inclusive space to exchange ideas and showcase their cultural products about the reduction and end of poverty.  

12) £5 AS A GIFT OF CREATION

To provide purchasing power to the poor people to buy basic farming and gardening tools to produce crops and create basic wealth to reduce poverty; in doing so this will empower them to become basic wealth creators and income generators to survive and win over poverty.  

In every gift mentioned above, there is relief and a touch of poverty relief.  Although we have given above an example of £5 as the amount of donation for each gift, there are no limits on the amount of donation.  That is why we are appealing to supporters or donors to go extra mile in their support.

By providing a gift of peace or a £5 (or more), this will help people in need to leave poverty and hardships behind and may be for ever.

A full 2019-2020 Festive Gifts Guide presenting them is available at CENFACS on request. 

Remember! For every gift (donation) you give, we can together help unfortunate and needy people in Africa to change their lives.
