Join Us in Uganda in January
Global Youth Partnership for Africa is ready to announce our winter break trips to Uganda and Sierra Leone in January 2007! Applications are available for Ugandans and Americans at www.gypafrica.org. Here is an overview of the Uganda program, which I am proud to help lead:
Global Kimeeza II: The Role of Youth in Post-Conflict Reconstruction
This fall, peace talks have brought a cessation of hostilities to the 20-year civil war in Northern Uganda; now is a critical time to examine the political situation and engage in the practice of reconstruction and reconciliation. The goal of the Kimeeza is to provide a platform for Americans and Ugandans to explore the important role that youth play in post-conflict reconstruction by sharing ideas, approaches, and strategies.
The Second Global Kimeeza will focus on three important domains that are necessary to rebuilding a thriving northern Uganda:
1. Youth as Peacebuilders;
2. Justice and Forgiveness; and
3. Poverty Relief and Economic Development.
This historic initiative will help establish a stronger relationship between the youth of the United States and Uganda. Ultimately, it is our goal to build bridges of greater understanding and inspire an ongoing dialogue between today’s young American and Ugandan leaders – tomorrow’s global decision makers.
The application should be online this morning, but if you are in a hurry, send an email to email@example.com to recieve one
