Service for Peace celebrated the International Day of Peace in three stages in Cote d‟Ivoire. Twenty volunteers, using the slogan “Give for Peace”, raised $400. They asked 400 people, to give only $1 each as a contribution to advance peace. This donation will be used to buy scholars kits for the kids of the locality. Peace messages were delivered by community chiefs and the young people of Djebonoua. At 12 noon, all the participants gathered for one minute of silence around the Peace Tree planted by Service For Peace volunteers last year for IDP.


The Cote D’Ivoire Chapter of Service For Peace held a conference on Peace and Social Cohabitation through differences. The event was made possible with the help of 162 volunteers from the local UN office, UNESCO, CERAP, National Television and Radio. All wanted to work together to avoid the catastrophic conflicts that other parts of Africa have endured.
