Board Chairperson
Aug. 2019 - Dec. 2022Africa Unyoke Foundation is an independent, African based, global resource organization that specializes in the inter-generational accompaniment of peace builders. It is a path-breaker in the African peace building field, and it is led and governed by African peace builders. Primarily, Unyoke is a series of reflective practice retreats for a diverse and inter-generational group of international peace-builders who value an opportunity to think and reflect alone and with peers about how to achieve deeper impact in their local contexts. “Unyoke” refers to lifting a yoke off the necks of oxen or water buffaloes. The dialogue-based exchanges in an Unyoke process are designed as a proverbial pit stop or a “creative pause” where participants can “unyoke”, exchange their best ideas and inspire one another to take the next steps on their respective journeys. Our vision is (to see) a human thread of flourishing and aspirant young leaders — especially women — who are connected with established peace leaders as a supportive community of practice, first in Africa (rooted in African knowledge systems) and then globally. Our mission is to accompany peace activists and nurture relationships between younger and established practitioners on their journeys of learning how to lead in dignity, transformation, healing and impact. Board member (August 2019 - to date) and Board Chairperson (January 2020 - to date)
