Occupation - Tell us what you do
I am the Executive Director at The African Centre for Peace Building, AFCOPB
Happy you joined. On a fun personal note there are a couple beautiful Ghana women that were caught in our economic downtern and we took them in for a month. They ended staying for a year and we became very good at African cooking. At the world cup and it was Ghana against US the room was filled with laughter. How I miss them.
If this interests you we can work together to put on a CyberYouth Day. This is a way for us to have a cell firm sponsor a large Youth signup for the Internet. We have Vodacom's attention, we shall see if we can get funding.
I hope you will download some of the Guides under the training tab and have your staff post their stories.
