Hullo Corina, I am Kato from Uganda. I am a Director of a Non-Profit making Community Based Organization called Integrated Community Development Initiative (ICODI). Our main aim is to reduce on the high levels of poverty, famine and poor health that is affecting the rural poor communities in Uganda. We train and support the rural poor to start Small Sustainable Household Income Generating Activities in order to avoid famine, poverty and poor health especially malnutrition in children.
In our health focus, we deal in HIV/AIDS, Malaria and TB awareness and prevention measures. These are the major killer diseases in Uganda which kills a hundreds of nationals on the every day basis.

I joined this net work and it’s a nice network, I would also want to be your friend on this network.

Hope to hear from you.

Dear Corina
I am sorry for the delay in replying you. Yes I was in EMU for summer programs. The experience was excellent. Totally multi-cultural and very active campus with different perspectives of Peace. I am happy to know that you are interested; I strongly encourage you to do that. It will help you very much with your already existing interests and activities. As regards your doubt about theory & practice I don’t know how much expect. I don’t think there will be real practical to solve disputes and issues. But there would be exposure to distant communities, organizations, boating hiking etc. If you are a student you will enjoy very much; there is a lot of freedom. As you may know, this being summer program the experiencing may be limited. But there is Masters Degree program, that may have more to offer you. If you need an application for summer program, please do not hesitate to send email 0r I can send to you as it comes. There are also some other peace institute in states . Best wishes; God bless your interests.

I will be applying to UPEACE in Costa Rica under Asia Leadership Programme and I hope to share whatever I find.Lets stay in touch.
Where are you based at? Thank you very much for your acceptance and friendship.
Kind Regards,

Dear Corina, It is surprising that we have not yet met. I've been involved with the Campaign for the Department of Peace and am a close friend of Dot Maver. I wanted to go to Costa Rica this September but my traveling schedule would not permit that. My book is more like a self help book which is very good in teaching people what forgiveness is and how to forgive. I am developing a forgiveness healing/training program now which I would like to use abroad especially in countries where healing needs to take place. I am also developing a project at the UN on forgiveness. I may be developing a CD or DVD on forgiveness which talks about forgiveness and its impact on a political level. I will be giving a key note on forgiveness which may also be recorded and which you may be interested in. I will keep you posted. Would PATRIR be interested in sponsoring me to do a training in forgiveness. By the way, I am the Director of Training for the Institute for Multi-Track Diplomacy and develop all the trainings in peacebuilding and conflict resolution which also has components in forgiveness and reconciliation. Lets stay in touch. I would love to hear more about what you do. Warmly, Eileen

What a fascinating project! Can you tell me more? I have been wanting to get involved for years with PATRIR since I lived in Cluj-Napoca for a few years and I love Galtung's work. (Plus I now have family in Cluj, too.)
