    This is great initiative. But how can Liberian organizations in West Africa benefit. Liberia children are rape and abused on a daily based ranking every 10 children per community, about 7% are abused and violated sexually between ages 10 and 12 and their perpetrators are no where found.

  • Avatar Moses Muhindo Kibalirwandi says:

    Rwenzori region in Uganda has experienced violence and I published an opinion paper title The polygon peace theory. and now it has projects that need to be implemented. Is it possible to get funding? Have you thought of the recent palace massacre that claimed over 100 people! this conflict is never to blame the current government but it has been lived with even in the past regimes hence it requires ideological orientation to the people of Rwenzori. I have worked on a university project which has failed to get funding. peace theory is about segments that contribute to the polygon whose area seem not clear for policy makers to make decision on how to solve the conflict.
