Clement Abas Apaak, an SFU archeology instructor and former president of the SFU Student Society, recently received a YMCA Power of Peace medal for his work as an international peacebuilder. Apaak, originally from Ghana, came to SFU as an international student. He has been at the forefront of the effort to send aid to Darfur, Sudan, to assist people there suffering through what the UN has called the worst humanitarian crisis of the new century. Apaak has organized many community groups in the Lower Mainland as well as founding Canadian Students for Darfur, an organization that has spread across 16 campuses in Canada. The YMCA says he stands for advocacy, human rights, equality and the power of students to change the world.
