|Welcome from the Executive Director|
Since its founding in 2007, International Network for Peace (IN4Peace) has focused on cultivating a network of peace-builders, individually and collectively, to help communities in the United States and Cambodia by leveraging resources, solving problems and identifying opportunities for P.E.A.C.E. Amidst the hustle of everyday life, it is easy to feel disconnected, uninspired, and powerless to participate in peacebuilding. The good news is that IN4Peace is here to help.
Imagine what the world would be like if everytime you were inspired to help, you could. Informed by the premise that technical, intellectual and innovative solutions already exist, we are utilizing tools and strategies in new ways to connect and support our beneficiaries, partners and the many individuals, like yourselves, who are committed to social justice, peacebuilding and counteracting the effects of the present violent systems around the world (i.e., injustice, disease, and poverty).
Years of civil war, external occupation, and brutal dictatorships have left Cambodia and her people still fighting for survival. Around 40% of Cambodians are forced to live on less than $1 US a day. The average person living in Cambodia lacks access to clean water, healthcare, and opportunities afforded by an education.
Children feel the most brutal consequences of this violence. Many Cambodian children are malnourished, few attend secondary school, and thousands die each year of preventable and treatable diseases. There are a myriad of ways in which you can help in combatting this violent system and brighten the future of Cambodia's children.
The IN4Peace website is one more way that we help you participate in building P.E.A.C.E., improving lives and meeting your giving needs in Cambodia. We are constantly adding more information on trends affecting this region as well as practical "how-to" information for individuals, corporations and charities that want to tap into our network for peace and better serve post-conflict nations like Cambodia.
We hope that you will find the tools, information and resources you are looking for on these pages. Of course, if you should have a question or comment, feel free to contact us.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Erik Salib, D.O.
