Grace Anuforo-Nigeria

My fellowship award gave me recognition in my home country, access to strategic partnerships, opportunities and networks . Makerere Peace Center taught me that in some way, we are all Local Peace Ambassadors when we solve problems within our small communities.

I am glad I chose the Makerere Peace Center for my fellowship because studying there helped me gather a wealth of experience about East Africa through the tours and interesting classes we had. I also now understand the role of Peace in the history of Africa as a whole and how we as Africans can come in to gradually make Africa matter on the Global Peace Index.
