All too often we shy away from evaluating and holding humanitarian efforts accountable to their project goal. We want to assume that do-gooders are doing good, though even with the best of intentions reconciliation can be elusive.
In the absence of clear metrics for success, comparable… Continue

I have heard so many rumors and comments as of late regarding the allegations of Canadian forces handing over Afghan detainees to possible torture and I wanted to address some of the major misconceptions out there.
For clarity sake, these issues need to be more fully addressed. Firstly, I completely disagree with some of the statements I have heard that essentially say that to discuss or call for inquiry on the torture issue is tantamount to not supporting our troops. This couldn't… Continue

With the Afghan sorrows continue to mount; the war on terror is going almost on autopilot, losing sight of the original objectives to be guided by permanent peace in Afghanistan and the region. Against this backdrop, nowadays the media flurry is conventionally being bickered betting high on the probabilities of seismic shifts assisting the war-ravaged Afghanistan towards a relative peace in the wake of forthcoming London Moot scheduled on 28 January 2010, which will be co-hosted by the UK Prime… Continue

We know that as difficult as forgiveness may be, the psychological case for practicing forgiveness is compelling. Although forgiveness can happen in an instant, for many of us it can take weeks, months, years or possibly a lifetime. The work of forgiveness is different for each of us, yet there are certain predictable steps all of us will go through. This program will describe what these steps are and how we go about achieving them. Some steps will be more difficult than others depending on our… Continue

Passive Recipient of Development
Within the global South, women’s key role in feeding their families, indeed women are neglected and undervalued. Because women farmers tend to focus on minor crops – called “minor” because they have less commercial value – women’s farming largely remains invisible. When agricultural training comes to a village, often only men are invited. Women are the primary custodians and protectors of our… Continue

Forgiveness takes us on a journey from the very pragmatic to the very sublime depending on our willingness to travel within the depth of our being. Our journey begins usually when our reality had been shattered and the pain of these broken pieces sears our heart. Over time the pain we carry becomes overwhelming and we think about what we can do to lessen our emotional burden. Perhaps this is the time we ask “Why Do We Forgive?” We forgive for a number of reasons. The list may… Continue

This is a sermon delivered by Martin Luther King at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church on Christmas of 1957. It deals with the question of how do we learn to love our enemies. For King the answer lies in forgiveness. In celebration of Martin Luther King day I wanted to share his inspiring words.
"First, we must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. It is impossible even to begin the act of loving one's enemies… Continue

The recent attack on the Togo football team raised security questions as to whether the World Cup in South Africa will be safe. Well, the World Cup will definitely be safe. The organisers, the police and probably the army are making sure of that and so this should not stop fans from coming to South Africa.
Although an attack like the above is rare in South Africa, the crime rate is high. According to the South African Police, the criminals are extremely vicious most of who will not… Continue
