Girls in Mombasa, Kenya

Since 2008, over 80 girls from poorer backgrounds in Kenya have been supported to stay in education thanks to generous PTPI Community Chapters sponsors and donors. “The education and empowerment of women throughout the world cannot fail to result in a more caring, tolerant, just and peaceful life for all”.

History

Our Journey

The concept of People to People represented part of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s lifelong crusade for peace. He believed that everyday citizens wanted a more peaceful world and could achieve it more effectively without government interference. (Video)

 

 

The result was the launching of the “People to People” initiative on September 11, 1956, under the U.S. Information Agency. This program of “personal diplomacy” emphasized nongovernmental contacts between people.

Support us

In Nigeria, we have been working tirelessly in line with the SDG6.  We hosted a school outreach program to educate students on the importance of water & why it is crucial for young people to start getting involved in WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene). We celebrated World Water Day on 22 March, with a roadshow called “walk for water and sanitation”. 

What we do

We are the African network of a vast global family of chapters. While chapters are autonomous, PTPI offers a variety of programs that increase our ability to deliver value to our local communities. We use the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a base for consistency. We have been incorporated since September 1956 through our World HQ in the USA.
