Hello Todd! your enthusiasm in impacting our world positive is indeed awesome. i appreciate your goodwill effort. I am also a graduate BSc in Environmental Sc and presently volunteering full time with Women For A Change Organization aimed at encouraging and promoting young women in becoming self reliance.

hopefully, in our subsequent discussion, we will have much more to share on the way forward in encouraging individuals/ organisation to mainstream peace advocacy in to their programs.
my blessings

wishing you and the entire family the best through out this festive season.
