ABSTRACT
This article reports on the efforts of two young men who founded the Genocide Intervention Network, an organization dedicated to stopping the genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan. Mark Hanis and Andrew Sniderman raised money from private sources for the peacekeeping force of the African Union. They experienced difficulty in disposing of the money but finally managed to give it to an African non-governmental organization that agreed to provide security for women in refugee camps.
