Somali American Peace Council (SAPC) was founded in 2007 with the mission of building strong relationships between Somalis and the international community. Since that time we have worked to act as a voice for the voiceless in order to establish a free, united, secure and prosperous Somalia. Until late 2012, SAPC was a loose group of volunteers that limited its activities to informal consensus building and information sharing among the Somali American community here in the United States. During the past four years, SAPC volunteers have participated in, promoted, and sponsored events to build a bridge of peace between Americans and Somali-Americans. Recently, beginning in November 2012, SAPC more formally identified its organizational goals and planned strategically for the development of programming in Somalia.
SAPC is recognized as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. This proposed program will be implemented in Mogadishu, and then across the country in all 18 regions of Somalia.
