Welcome to the CHIPS summer update
Thank you for joining with us, and the CHIPS family of supporters around the world, in the work of peacemaking. If you're new to CHIPS this is where you'll find out about our team, projects and plans. Your interest, generosity and prayers are vital and greatly appreciated.
What’s happening: Celebrating over 7,500 lives impacted in Ghana

Elfrida reflects on the nature of CHIPS peacemaking as the Ghana team reach the milestone of over 7,500 people impacted by our team's work in communities around Nakpayili, Northern Ghana. Read more here...
New self help groups and our peacemaking methods
As our practical projects are expanding and new communities joining together in practical projects, we have taken this opportunity to look back on why we are working in Ghana in this context, and what new work we will be doing. Read more here...
A word from Desmond and the team in Ghana
Desmond has been part of the Ghana team since the very beginning in 2011 and has led the team there since Paul left Ghana in 2012. He reflects here about the progress that has been made and how our practical projects are helping communities to come together. Read more here.
CHIPS Brixton expands work
With knife crime at an all time high in Lambeth, CHIPS is expanding its work in the borough to Clapham Park estate, historically a rival gang area in conflict with Angell Town/ Loughborough Estate where CHIPS is based, working with other organisations to deliver vital mental health provision.

We couldn't make the impact that we do without your prayer and support. The milestone of over 7,500 lives changed by our Ghana project could not have been reached without you. From all our teams we say a huge thank you!
