Day started well, brought the supplies to the airport and Vietnam Airlines allows me to carry 50kg of Medicine and Food to Fukuoka for Relief Work.

Building peace through entrepreneurship and vocational skills - Powerful message from TEDxMogadishu


Ilwad Elman, from Elman Peace and Human Rights Center in Mogadishu, Somalia shares her late father's vision and ideal:

"Drop the gun, pick up the pen".

"The majority of those involved in armed conflicts were youth on either side so he felt that presenting them with appealing opportunities and providing them with alternative livelihoods and giving them skills that they could use to sustain themselves then in turn they would not contribute to be a part of the violence. And by taking out those that were the majority, then he felt that peace building would be a lot easier and the ones that were left, the warlords, they would be easier to reconciliate".

November 19-21, 2011 Mission to Haiti Report

Lalue, Port-au-Prince, kids send a message to Japan! With them Carlos Miranda Le

This mission was different than others. Our local partners informed us well in advance that they were all pretty busy the weekend of Fri. Nov. 18 - Sun. Nov. 20, but we decided to come anyway and fulfill the commitment of Port-au-Prince participating in the global celebration of TEDxYouth day. So we cleared with our local partners our intention to go forward and host a more modest event with other common friends and moved forward with the plan.
