Wonderful Opportunity!

I will forward to several friends who might be interested...

Thanks a lot for this vibrant information.I just hope that the requirements for it are not so stringent like the work experience since few or no organisations in some countries you could get such experience in peace or violence. I just hope that its left open for interested people and those who exhibit hope passion for it.
otherwise its such a nice and promising Africans and peace lovers.
