This is a plug for the Peace RAG and the “Peace is” videos that they have produced in English and Spanish. RAGFP is making a big push to get these videos distributed and watched.
This grant was initiated by a Rotary Club in Bogota, Colombia. The people of Colombia have recently ended 53 years of civil war. Those under 53 years of age have only known armed conflict in their lifetimes. This grant will teach peace literacy to women and children in several communities near Bogota.
The grant has the support and participation of 2 former Rotary Peace Fellows.
The VTT (Vocational Training Team) will be anchored by an MBBI team out of Toronto and supplemented by participants from Nicaragua and Spain.
