Our Projects

Peace & Unity

Caring for our common home

Using the resources made available by the WWF-Guianas Sweet Water Project we were able to use murals to connect with a local artist Nigel Butler and several non-governmental organisations, such as Ecotrust Society, Silent Walls Murals, University of Guyana Biology Club along with the owner of this wall, Guyana Human Rights Association to implement community-led changes in the knowledge, attitudes and practices of individuals concerning environmental protection.

Peace & Unity

"United & Free” Racial Harmony Virtual Concert

In addition, to the pledges and mural, we thought that ties among various ethnicities can be further strengthened by having a racial harmony concert. After all, what better way to bring persons together than with music and art.

Racial Harmony Murals

Policy Forum Guyana took the decision to promote unity among Guyanese one step further by creating an everlasting impact. The decision was made to utilized a section of the fence of the McKenzie Sports Complex, Linden, and a Ball Field in Paradise, West Coast Berbice to create a message of awareness in a mural form.

Racism-Free Zones

Almost everyone can agree that racial harmony is important and this is especially critical in Guyana. This project aimed to reduce ethnic tensions among the Afro-Guyanese and the Indo-Guyanese rural communities.

Strengthened Capacity of Indigenous Communities

Due to a lack of essential supplies such as food, sanitary products, medical supplies, and equipment, an inadequate amount of staff for these medical facilities. As a result of this, the borders and non-essential jobs remain closed or operating with reduced staff.

PFG’S CLIMATE STRIKE

The international press has in recent months, shared stories of varying environmental crises, such as the lungs of the earth, the Amazon Rainforest is on fire or about hurricane Dorian and how it has devastated the Bahamas. If not, Guyanese have certainly felt the increase in temperature over the past few weeks hence the climate is changing faster than we can cope.
