Tostan's Mission: We empower African communities to bring about sustainable development and positive social transformation based on respect for human rights. We believe that through this mission we can ensure every person—woman, man, girl, and boy—is able to live a life of dignity.

 

Come join us for a powerful hour of story telling with Tostan's  Peace and Security Director, Mory Camara. Mory's leadership in the Peace and Security Initiative has been ground breaking in border conflict resolution and prevention. In fact, under his leadership, the program has resolved 1,500 local, family, and regional conflicts in West Africa.

The conversation will be moderated by Kathy LeMay, Founder and Co-Owner of Raising Change.
