The team at Sini Sanuman are getting to know me, and I them, very quickly. Emotions, illnesses and various personal issues arose while in the office, and it’s good to know my host have my back. I was sent here as a Peace Fellow with the Advocacy Project to work with Sini Sanuman and help them maintain a good relationship with international donors and manage their programmes effectively.

Mali, ô Mali!

- Me, they married me. The first night, my husband came. The second night, another husband came. And the third night, yet another one. It was like this until the end of the week, when the first one came again. He thanked me for his friends. And then he hit me.

- Why did he hit you?

- To punish me.

- For marrying too much. I managed to escape, dressed like a boy.

(Mali, ô Mali, Erik Orsenna – own translation from French original)

Designed to Arrive Early: How We Can Save the Lives of Millions of Children

Dr Ari Johnson

Today, thousands of doctors – including me – will go to work. And wait. This is how most health systems function: providers wait for patients to come into clinics or emergency departments seeking our care.

The Uncertainties in Mali: Is the honeymoon over?

Paul Collier's TED lecture

Dear Kira:

I decided to start a new type of post on a Peace of Conflict reviewing conflict situations in the world on a somewhat weekly basis. I figured, I read this stuff every week anyway-- I might as well share it with readers in condensed form.
