Sarah Ibrahim and the Girl Ambassadors for Peace are now on Facebook!

“My name is Sarah Ibrahim, a 19-year old member of the Girl Ambassadors for Peace (GA4P) in North Kivu, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). DRC is beautiful and rich, but war has devastated our country and makes life difficult for everyone and especially women and girls. I am a rape survivor and I know there are many other women and girls who have had this painful experience. But that is not who I am and who we are. As a GA4P member, I work with other young women in North Kivu to raise literacy, promote young women’s leadership and peacebuilding in our local communities. I have also learned about Resolutions 1325 and 1820.  I am now teaching other girls and young women about them. I am also learning to use radio and social media to speak against violent extremism. I and all of my friends at GA4P want peace! The Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP), and the Synergie des femmes pour les victimes des violences sexuelles (SFVS) are our partners in this work.

I am happy to announce that the GA4P is on  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/girlambassadors4peace/

where we share with you our exciting work in North and South Kivu as well as those of our sisters the GA4P in Eastern Equatoria, South Sudan. Please visit us and like us on FB and more importantly, send us questions and comments about our work. 

For other questions on the GA4P,please contact: [email protected]
