Breaking down walls; working across divides — peacebuilding undergirds all of Mennonite Central Committee’s work, but what does that look like in real-life situations? In war torn countries such as Afghanistan and North Korea, MCC partners with communities to end hunger, provide education, access clean water, and empower families to ensure their own livelihoods. The past 40 years of conflict in Afghanistan has taken its toll and women especially are traumatized by the external violence of war and the culture of gender inequity.

Join us at Sam’s Place for a cup of locally brewed coffee and hear how MCCA is working with local partners in Afghanistan and across Asia to bring a glimmer of hope to those affected.

We’ll provide the snacks while Rebecca and Blaine lead this important discussion. We encourage questions and conversation as we explore how Mennonite Central Committee is peacebuilding in war-torn Afghanistan and Asia by working with local partners.
