Friday, May 19th First Bpeace Training in Session!

Manny leading the associates in visioning what peace means to them. Sabra and Selma training the associcates--icebreaker introductions.

Leiny presenting her vision for peace.

The team opened the first Bpeace business training session to heartwarming applause from our new 19 associates. After an intro to Bpeace Fast Runner Strategy by Anne, Marla told the women about the work Bpeace has been doing in Afghanistan. In Sabra and Selma style, personable and fun, the How to Track Finance Workshop began with laughter and practical advice.

After lunch, Anne spoke of the importance of making the connection of Business to Peace. Manny led an exercise on drawing out the meaning of peace, literary or shall I say “artistically.” Each woman drew a picture of what peace means to them. They were pleased to have the opportunity to share their pictures and thoughts with us as well as each other. Their pictures depicted images of family, thriving communities, flowers and love.

"All we are saying is give peace a chance." I hope we get to see some of these pictures. Love to all, Golde.
I LOVE this approach to having a conversation about peace. Drawing an image and sharing it is a powerful way of creating the discussion. Beautiful approach!
