PPA Makes Grant to Regional NGO to Support Mine Site Demilitarization
Jun 16, 2017
Effective May 1, PPA has awarded a new grant to the Coalition of Civil Society Organizations in the Great Lakes Region (COSOC-GL), which will be used to build awareness of the importance of demilitarization of mine sites. COSOC’s work will include direct workshops and a radio campaign targeting members of the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (FARDC), civil society, and citizens in critical sectors of South Kivu – one of DRC’s most conflicted-affected provinces. COSOC’s outline of expected project impacts and outcomes will soon be posted to the website.
