I am trained and passionate humanitarian diplomat, Humanitarian Chaplain and a peace ambassador. My major focus is training the youth in learning institutions on the importance of maintaining peace in their respective communities.
Besides, I am involved in global peace appeal that conducts peace parades worldwide. The Global peace parade is run by the international college of peace under the guidance of the Provost His eminence Dr. Kennedy Waningu. I volunteer as a peace ambassador and help promote the event and physically get involved in the field whenever the parade is being conducted. Peace is paramount to all humanity. Its the best way to solve conflicts. Presence of peace helps communities and economies thrive.
The main challenge in my commitment to peace is negative political influence. Politicians use the youth to advance their personal interests. Such politicians manipulate the youth to cause violence and war. As part of our institution. I am committed to help mentor, rain and inspire the youth in schools and colleges to say NO to violence. Peace is all we need.
