A STATEMENT ABOUT THE PEACE FUND POKER EVENT

To those of you attending Peace Fund Poker on October 14, it is due to unforeseen logistical issues, that The Peace Fund board have decided to postpone this year’s event.

I want to personally thank everyone for your generous support and donations thus far, that will definitely help the children we are supporting.

Recovery is a long term event, so will be moving donations to an online contest for celebrity campaigns, as well as an online silent auction.

Please know that we are always committed to fulfilling all obligations to our sponsors and on the donations we raise.

The new event date will likely be early in the New Year and I hope you will still be able to join us.

"In 2016, according to the Forced Marriage Unit, 41% of cases in the UK involved victims below the age of 18."

When Arifa Nasim was 14, reading Jasvinder Sanghera’s book, “Daughters of Shame,” had a profound impact on her. The collection of stories from those who suffered through forced marriages and honor-based violence motivated her to become a voice and an advocate for the victims of such abuse. After years of campaigning, fundraising and raising awareness about the prevention of honor-based abuse, she was selected as an official UK delegate to the Sustainable Development Goals Summit. It was there that Arifa realized educational movements at the grassroots level were the source for change on a larger scale.

She founded Educate2Eradicate, a non-profit organization committed to spreading knowledge to prevent the hundreds of thousands of individuals at risk from experiencing forced marriage, genital mutilation and honor-based abuse. Educate2Eradicate provides information and resources online, leads training for youth and educators, and organizes events to increase understanding on the dangers of honor-abuse and how to prevent and fight against violent practices. 

To date, Arifa has educated more than 5,000 individuals and plans to grow Educate2Eradicate into a holistic program, training larger organizations and offering counseling and legal advice to victims.  @educate2eradicate
