March 23, 2018 (Nepal) Megan's memories from the internship in Nepal
March 19th, 2018 (USA) 2018 James G. Fellowship Award The James Green Fellowship Award dinner took place on Monday, 19th, 2019, 6:30pm - 8:00pm at Halsten Enterprise Southwestern regional office. The purpose of this fellowship award diner is to award Professional Certificates of Completion to research assistants who engaged in our programs this semester, and successfully completed the United Nations Global Engagement summit 2018. In compliance with our advocacy in U.S. Foreign Policy for strong U.S-UN Relations, Government relations and most importantly, cultural diplomacy, recipients received a Presidential Pin (Seal of the Office) that represents the effort and impressive achievements of our interns in fostering multi-cultural dialogue, global peace, UN Sustainable development Goals and citizen-diplomacy, while tough decisions must be made in this fiscal climate, working with the UN is a resoundingly good bargain for the U.S. As citizen diplomats, recipients will continue to stand with their respective constituents in protecting funding for the vitally important work of the UN.
Why advocating for the United Nations? The United Nations was established to foster global peace, prosperity and justice. It has succeeded in its fundamental mission of preventing a third world war and improving global quality of life. But over the last 60 years, the UN’s mission and membership have been broadened dramatically. Why we stand for the United Nations (UN): - The UN provides food aid to 80 million people in 80 countries - It has helped vaccinate 45 percent of the world’s children - The UN assists over 65 million refugees and people fleeing war, famine, and persecution - It has Kept peace with over 110,000 UN Peacekeepers in 15 operations on 4 continents - The UN continue to fight extreme poverty, helping improve the lives of more than 1.1 billion people Thank you for helping us stand up for the UN.

After it was made we tied up in the middle of the street so that it can be seen by the people walking in the street. We also sat with the designer to design the certificate of appreciation which we will give to every donor wo will donate blood. Then we went to school for meeting with the principal to talk about volunteering by the students during the day of event.

March 13, 2018 (Rwanda)
It was the last day, when I saw a call for application to the PBI program. I gave it my best and applied. Three weeks later, I got an email I had been accepted into the Peace Building Institute. The institute is a bi-annual program bringing together youth and young professionals. PBI gave us the opportunity to learn about Rwanda’s history, as well as engage in a series of activities, and discussions about post-conflict development approaches.
The institute this year brought together 30 of us from Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, South Sudan, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Democratic Republic of Congo and Sudan. PBI is a program of Never Again Rwanda - a social peace building and social justice organization – and now in its 16th edition. NAR’s vision for the PBI is to create a network of Global Peace Ambassadors that will be change agents in their different communities. We all descended into Kigali on the 25th of February where our 14 days journey – memorable 2 weeks – kicked off. Different thought provoking themes were covered ranging from the causes and stages of genocide, strategies of genocide prevention, success and challenges, the role of media in peacebuilding, stereotypes and identity manipulation and critical thinking to mention but a few. I learned a lot from my fellow participants, the facilitators and got an in-depth understanding into the Rwanda Genocide. We had the opportunity for different sight visits like the Gisozi Memorial, Murambi Memorial- this was the most intense sight visit for me, the king’s palace and the presidential palace.
