Belgium: Femmes au Secours de la Paix’s Project
By Colette Cunningham, WFWP Begium
On Saturday evening, March 25th, Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) in Belgium held a presentation on ‘Femmes au Secours de la Paix’s Project in Senegal’ at the Belgium UPF headquarter.
The presentation, was given by Mrs. Bénédicte Suzuki, North of France representative for the Women’s Federation for World Peace and founder in March 2015 of « Femmes au Secours de la Paix » (http://www.femmes-au-secours-de-la- paix.com/). The organization’s goal is to help women overcome their struggles by helping others according to their means and possibilities.
The organization has several activities, in particular a partnership with a school in Malika situated next to Dakar, Senegal. Founded by Ambroise and Delaila, the school allows poor children from Dakar’s suburbs to go to school. We also had the pleasure of hearing from Miss Mishio Jacques, volunteer during the 2016 summer project, who shared her experience and impressions in Senegal.
The presentations ended with a lively question and answer period before everyone enjoyed some delicious African food together.
