Dear Friend, 

I just created a petition entitled To replace Violent Time with Peace Time: Peace Time will make PEACE AN INTEGRAL COMPONENT OF DEVELOPMENT, because I care deeply about this very important issue. 

I'm trying to collect as many signatures, and I could really use your help. 

To read more about what I'm trying to do and to sign my petition, click here: 

It'll just take a minute! 

Once you're done, please ask your friends to sign the petition as well. Grassroots movements succeed because people like you are willing to spread the word!

Hi Maria,

Thank you so much for your response.

Our students are studying countries in Africa. We would greatly appreciate having the opportunity to have a discussion using Skype on the topic of education with you and your students.

A few logistical questions:

What are their ages? Our students are 11-12 years old

Time (7 hr difference) - you are 7 hrs. ahead of us. How late in the day can you or your students skye?

Here is a sample of their questions. We would be happy to answer your students’ questions as well.

Is education compulsory in Uganda?
Is education free?
How many years does the average person attend school?
What is the ratio of girls to boys that attend school in Uganda?
What percentage of children graduate from secondary school?

Thank you. I look forward to your response.

Oh, thank you. It would be great to talk to your children. ( Now, because of Easter, we have a week holiday at school,) but I would be very glad to start meeting you and your children. It would be very interesting for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ( we have never done it before, but I think it can be a big adventure for my small kids!!!). We start language education at the age of 6 or 10. That means, that my students can talk just a few words or sentences about a topic.
Before our "meeting" we could agree on a topic ( like families, our villages...etc), and next we could meet. ( like describing our project works..or something like that)
Which age would you reccomend to meet?
Oh, it would be really fantastic!

So sorry I didn't see this before! Yes, I have been to Tanzania twice, working with schools and students and Roots & Shoots groups and leaders. Beautiful country, as I am sure Uganda is!
