The Wi'am Center

One place I am looking forward to visiting has been nominated for the World Vision Peace Prize!

"The purpose of the World Vision International Peace Prize is to annually recognise and honour one individual who is a catalyst for peacemaking and one organisation which champions the integration of peacebuilding into relief, development and advocacy programmes."
