This special Inspire Indeed episode offers background information on the VA Friends of Mali and Project Cure in anticipation of the “Women, War & Peace” conference coming to the VCU’s Student Commons on September 20 and 21. The conference will include film screenings, research, symposia, and panel discussions. The conference will also pay special attention to the warfare in Mali, where Richmond Virginia’s “Sister City,” Ségou, is located. Guest speaker Allan Levenberg developed an interest in African traditional music, co-founded the VA Friends of Mali, and joined the effort to make Ségou Richmond’s “Sister.” He also led the Richmond Project Team in completing three building projects for Ségou (through a grant from the Africa Urban Poverty Alleviation Program). These projects built public toilets in a kindergarten, a market, and a clinic to help improve public health. Levenberg is hoping that conference attendees Project Cure will provide medical supply shipments to Ségou’s clinic, main hospital, and blood bank. For more information, visit
