The Global Peace Foundation (GPF) has joined efforts to locate and rescue the 276 Nigerian girls who were kidnapped from their school in Chidok, Nigeria some three weeks ago. “I believe, and I think you do too, that girls should not grow up in fear of being sold, kidnapped, or stolen from their schools and families,” wrote Cat Lockman, Director of Organizational Development for the organization.
GPF is a not-for-profit organization headquartered in Lantham, Maryland which, according to its website, “promotes an innovative, values-based approach to peace-building, guided by the vision that all human beings are members of One Family under God.” The organization also has offices in several other countries, including one in Nigeria.
“I firmly believe that the Global Peace Foundation (GPF) can offer a longer-term solution. When the news first broke three weeks ago, I put out a call for donations to boost Global Peace Foundation’s urgent peacemaking efforts in Nigeria,” qrote Ms. Lockman in a recent press release. She explained further, “The Global Peace Foundation has an active and strong local chapter in Nigeria that is working with community leaders, faith leaders, political leaders and youth to catalyze change and create direct antidotes to extremist violence.”

“We cannot imagine our daughters, sisters, or loved ones in the hands of the unknown. We feel deeply for the girls and their families—and we want to respond,” wrote Ms. Lockman. Will you answer this urgent plea for help?
