I miss you all! I have being rolling on with my study fellowship at King's College siince October 2009. The Peace and Security Fellowship for African Women http://securityanddevelopment.org/ has being a very educating and intensive program that combined academic standing with mentoring program for all the 8 fellows from Nigeria, Kenya, Burkina Faso, Sierra Leona, Ghana, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe respectively.

I am glad to be on this program and I am glad that this initiative exist to involve as many women as possible on peace and security for the development of both national and human security in Africa. This in a way help achieve the set out objectives of resolution 1325 [I hope] among other prominent issues facing africa as a continent.

I have missed you all like I said and just take this update as a " Hi 5" to you all! And the picture of the 8 of the fellows is seeing above.

Great to see you again

Oluwatoyin,
It is great to hear from you and I look forward to hearing about the conclusions you draw from this program, as it tackles such an important and timely issue as many African countries enter a period of instability. We will look to leaders such as yourselves to create hope for the continent's future and present initiatives that we can all learn from. Please keep us in touch with what you learn as I am sure many of us will benefit from the teachings and practices. Best wishes to you,
Janice

Hi Oluwatoyin,

High five to you as well! I love the picture - but which one is you?? Thank you for sharing some of your experience as a fellow at King's College for the Peace and Security Fellowship for African Women. What an amazing opportunity! I'd love to hear more about your work and how you came to be an activist and scholar for African peace and security issues. I'm sure that you have a great wealth of knowledge and experience to share with our community!

Hugs,
Jade
