How to Support the Peace and Collaborative Development Network (Creative Ideas Welcome)

Dear Colleagues

There are a number of ways you can help support the PCDN network as outlined below.


1. Become a Paying Member - The PCDN network has helped impact thousands of individuals and organizations around the world to help connect, inspire, provide sources of funding, scholarships, training and much more. To date out of our 35,000 members around the world, only 900 (which is less than 2.5%) have contributed to the network). While we are grateful for all of the payments to date,  to sustain our work we rely on your support and would like to increase member support to at least 40% of the entire membership. We are now asking you to consider paying what you can in any amount ranging from $1 and up.  For more details see the Support Page.


2. Considering Placing an Ad on PCDN - To date advertisers on PCDN include leading universities and organizations from around the world including Georgetown University, University of Notre Dame, University of Edinburgh, Rotary International, United States Institute of Peace,  Brandies University, TechChange and many others. Advertisers are reporting 10%-100% (or greater) increase in their web traffic through PCDN Ads which results in new clients, students, etc. For more info see the advertising page.

Craig, Thank you for all your hard work to cull a comprehensive array of opportunities and relevant information for peace builders and do-gooders worldwide.  Through PCDN, we learned about the Ariane de Rothschild's Fellowship for social enterprise.  Esu applied and was recently chosen as a Fellow!  He'll be heading off to Cambridge University in July and we hope this will be a big break and unprecedented opportunity for The BARKA Foundation.  We never would have known about it were it not for you and your tireless work at PCDN.  'Barka' is an African word of gratitude, blessing & reciprocity.  Barka Craig!  Ina & Esu, Co-Founders.

PCDN is great Craig!  you really had a good idea.

it may be useful to do some outreach in various countries/ regions. I find that almost no one here in India knows about this site, yet they want something like this-- someplace to look up schools, post for jobs, and engage in conflict related discussions.

Reaching out to the smaller, grassroots NGOs would do them a lot of good.

Thanks for all the hardwork you do on that end Craig.

cher collègue,

Nous sommes réjouis du message nous adresser et le travail de résolution pacifique des conflits que vous ne cesser pas de fournir, en plus, les chemins de parcour que vous nous avez tracé concernant les utilisateurs qui lisent nos sites et qui trouvent bénéfice dédans. Nous disons encore merci .

Néanmoins, pour le moment nous nous préparons d'organiser un séminaire de réflexion sur la cohabitation pacifique entre les communautés déchirées par les effets de guerres si elle est Possible ? Le séminaire doit être organisé publiquement dans un centre ville du Territoire de FIZI /SUD-KIVU /RD-CONGO à BARAKA, une ville de plus de 30.000personnes. Ainsi, nous nous posons la question de savoir comment vous envoyez les textes pour commentaires et ajoutent avant d'organiser le séminaire.

Franche collaboration

LUBANGU Lumenge Jacques . Représentant Légal de l'association " ARMMK"

Craig-- together with many others you are the right agent, doing right things, in the right manner, at the right time, to the right people. This is what I refer to as 'making a difference where it really counts.'

The world over, peace is a necessity and not mere ideal.

We shall keep the fire burning...
