Before the Summit, there will be a two day Pre-Summit Training - Storytelling for Peacebuilding - on Friday, 30 September 2011 and Saturday, 01 October 2011.


There are two methods registering. The first option is to register online at: http://www.mfp-dop.org/

We are working to get the online payment system approved by PayPal and will have that or something comparable on our website in the coming weeks. Until then, you can make payments directly to First National Bank of South Africa (complete details on the payment page).

Those who require financial assistance are welcomed to apply, using the Application for Financial Assistance Form attached. The Summit Planning Team will do our best to accommodate your needs, though we cannot guarantee that all who apply will receive scholarships.
