CENTER FOR PEACE EDUCATION (CPE) –
A BENEFIT / CHARITY EVENT
Where: St. Edmund’s College - University of Cambridge
When: 26 July 2012 @ 6 – 7pm
Why: To Support CPE’s Work For War Affected Children
After 14 years of deadly war, Charles Taylor, the former rebel leader and president of Liberia, was convicted of War Crimes and is expected to serve 50 years in a British prison cell.
What does this mean to ordinary Liberians, both victims and perpetrators, especially children? Justice, whose Justice? Peace, what kind of peace? An end to violence?
The sad reality is that even though the war ended some seven years ago, children and young people continue to use violence as a means to achieving or protecting their interests.
To help find solutions to continued violence in Liberia, the Centre for Peace Education (CPE) was established in March 2009 with a mission to teach young people and others involved in the conflict, the skills and knowledge to live peacefully.
To commemorate 165 years of Liberia’s Independence, on 26 July Mainlehwon is hosting a charity event at which he will give a talk about Liberia and the work of CPE. The event will include an exhibit which will showcase pupils’ visual and written artistic expressions of war, peace, and symbols of peace.
YOU’RE ALL WELCOME!
