This is in fact a very good program especially for us here in Bougainville of Papua New Guinea where we have the same race and similar culture as with the Africans. Our problems and issues are also similar and we in Bougainville are also going through the process of reconciliation. However, it seems that this is only limited for African Countries. I am just wondering if someone from our part of the world could be considered to attend??

Dear Dennis

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.


Dear Friend,

I am from Nepal and working in the field of Peace and reconciliation on the postwar peace building Scenario. I am searching the training about the same. I found this training course is favorable for me. I would like to request you provide me the detail information and procedure for the training on my email and

Thanks for the cooperation

from Nepal

Dear Khageshor

Thank you for your interest in the programme.

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 for Africans only.

Warm regards,



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!

Dear Peter

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.


Warm regards,
