"Fantsuam foundation is a non profit organization from Northern Nigeria that executes or operates an integrated development model. At the beginning of this year my organization secured funding with a US-based founder called Peace Tech Exchange to run a project that will curb hate speech. Given the history of elections in Nigeria, hate speech tends to span conflicts. Giving a training on this and raising awareness seem a preparatory ground towards the forth coming election. This training started in early May, participants were drawn across religious/cultural divide. I think the topic is real adequate, stating 'Countering Hate Speech by Youths, Teachers and Mothers using Technology, Kafanchan, Kaduna State'. The achievement I see in this training is how a better understanding of hate speech lexicon emanates so strongly, participants realized it. Suddenly is the way they interpret these terms and words leads to being provocative and the height of conflict, they take as their responsibility."

"We are a team of researchers at the University of Queensland conducting a meta-analysis on the relationship between trust and charitable giving. Having completed our review of the published literature, we are now seeking to incorporate unpublished data.
Please contact us if you have published or unpublished data that includes both a measure of trust, for example:
•Generalized social trust
•Trust in institutions
•Trust/confidence in charities
•Trust/confidence in a specific charity
AND a measure of charitable giving (donations of money), for example:
•Self-reported past giving
•Giving intentions, willingness to give, or hypothetical donations
•Archived giving behavior
•Behavioral measures of giving

If you have data that fit the above criteria, or if you have any questions about inclusion, please email Cassandra Chapman ("
