CITY-TO-CITY COLLABORATION PROGRAM™
The ICP CITY-TO-CITY COLLABORATION PROGRAM™ is available for individual Cities of Peace to create cooperative, non-legally-binding City-to-City Agreements with other Cities of Peace. The Program enables multi-city collaboration for people-to-people communication, mutual goal achievement and support.
How to Start a City-to-City Collaboration Program
A few current examples of City-to-City Initiatives:
NOTE: The focus of International Cities of Peace is to encourage “in situ” voluntary actions to increase peace in each community. Networking with other Cities of Peace can be beneficial but can also distract from the essence of community peacebuilding. Act Local, Network Global™.
Case Study #1: As a result of the urging of the City of Peace team in Sedona, Arizona, John Mukhutu, leader of the City of Peace in Kowelzi, D.R. Congo, arranged a meeting with the local Rotary. The Chief of that region (the head of government) was so impressed with John’s presentation that 10 acres and 10,000 concrete blocks were given to the project. You can match that level of local support with a moderate donation. And you can watch these orphans thrive.
Dedicate your donation to someone you love!
Case Study #2: Together, we provided funds for the abused and ostracized women of Bujumbura, Burundi — seeds and land for their gardens, fees for their children’s schooling, housing and medicines. We told them up-front it would be just for one year. We did great. One of our colleagues even bought them a used computer so their children would have a window to the world. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
We also encouraged their leader, Furaha Soleil, to ask the women to consider starting a business. We gave them a little support. Only they can empower themselves. We are happy to report the women of Burundi have developed a business plan!
No obligation, but it sure tugs on the heart strings. If you would like to help these women start their Eight Goats business to keep their children in school and food on the table, please do… $50? $100? $500? To them, so little is so much!
As usual, receipts for their purchases are provided and no salaries are paid, so all funds go directly to the women.
If you prefer, mail check or money order made out to “International Cities of Peace” to the address below. All work is done by volunteers. The organization is a 501(c)3 so your donations are tax deductible.
