Hope (+Action) is the operative word...for Darfur, too

These students attend Darfur Peace & Development Organization's Forug School of Peace. Here they give an enthusiastic greeting to DPDO's Susan Burgess-Lent in May (2008). Forug is in the Kutum locality of Darfur & this school is very crowded (in itself, excellent news). These & other students will benefit from the Tents of Hope Gathering in Washington, DC this coming weekend. Please visit the website for information & updates. (Even if you can't be here, you can help spread the word & that is very important.)

There will be a vigil outside the Sudanese Embassy on Friday, 7 November 2008. Details here. [
Updates throughout the week & weekend.]
