Thank you for your reply and bringing this to my attention. Regrettably, this programme is open for individuals from Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda only. We are aware of the need to run the programme on a wider scale but due to capacity limitations, we are currently able to host it for Africans only.
I promise to notify you should we open it up to a wider audience.
Warm regards and best wishes for your work.
Thank you for your interest in the programme.

I don't know why the restriction on the fellowship application, but I think it should have been left opened to all post-conflict countries like Liberia and others.Thanks for offering the fellowship to assist Africa and Africans work for durable peace on the Continent. I hope I can be invited for the next fellowship as I am interested in the Programme too from Liberia.
Thanks and God bless you real good!

thank you for your interest in the programme; yours has not been the only request to host the programme on a wider scale. Unfortunately and as is so often the case with us NGO's-we are a small organisation with limited space and a limited budget so we have to focus our programme on a small selection of countries.
I will notify you should we run a programme further afield and hope that in the meantime you might find other programmes to participate in.
Good luck with your work.
