A few weeks ago SFCG held its annual fundraising event in the San Francisco Bay Area. The guests enjoyed an inspiring and informative presentation by President John Marks and Senior Vice President Susan Collin Marks at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in San Francisco.

Enthusiasm ran high as guests learned of recent successes in Search programs in the Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Tanzania, Pakistan, North Africa, Yemen, and the United States.  In the Democratic Republic of Congo, SFCG has many programs for ending gender violence. In Pakistan, SFCG is  producing its flagship TV soap opera The Team, featuring a cricket team, as well as many other peacebuilding activities. After long delays due to unrest and political instability, SFCG is now able to begin its work in Yemen.

John and Susan set a context of hope and patience for those dedicated to peacebuilding, and expressed the deepest appreciation for the support Search receives from the Bay Area community of donors.
