10 Years of Building Capacity for Peace in Africa


TestimonialAnn Rita2.jpgMy relationship with UPAP dates back to January 2008; a journey that begun with submission of a concept note in response to a call for research concept notes. This humble beginning, turned out to be the avenue for lifetime fulfillment. I won two grants, the UPEACE-IDRC Peace Researchers’ research grant (2008) and the UPEACE-IDRC Doctoral Research Award (2009). Though the grants had a specific time period, the impact, as is expected is lifelong. From better service delivery as a university lecturer to service to the community, promotion in academic ranking and enhanced organization as an individual, I owe my career progression and personal advancement to UPEACE.
