- Act for Peace is the lead agency in the implementation of a Disaster Risk Reduction Project which aims to improve the ability of villages to identify risks in their environment and take action to reduce and manage those risks of natural disasters in the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Tonga and Vanuatu. A local committee is formed, community and church meetings are held and awareness raising sessions run in schools and marketplaces.
- Act for Peace has a project partner, Christian Care, which has introduced conservation farming to local farmers. This is a low cost and low technology farming strategy, which helps to provide food security. An annual farmer field day event is held, which showcases the best performing farmers who receive awards for good performance and initiative. It also provides a forum for farmers to share best practices about conservation farming.
Act for Peace is the international aid agency of the National Council of Churches in Australia. You are invited to remember both these ventures in prayer. Info at www.actforpeace.org.au or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
