Empowering Uganda, Peace via Dialogue program 2021

Peace via Dialogue - Boxing for Peace is a program that constributes to a world where Peace and Love are available for everyone. 

Boxing gives discipline to the wild, strength to the weak, and confidence to the shy. Boxing for Peace workshops help people to come out of the dark and to restore their lost voices. The workshops are acts of Love with an impact in the lifes of the people involved and beyond.  

Dialogue connects people and leads to understanding & inspiration. The Peace via Dialogue program is a rich and creative program for people who want to become a Dialogue event organizer and Dialogue facilitator. It is set up in a way that can easily be used by those people themselves to train others too. Also the program offers an introduction in Restorative Circles (system & process) and offers coaching in empowerment and talent development.

My name is Jolanda van Wijk. Based in the Netherlands. Since 2008 I run my sole proprietorship in business relationship management, later I added executive coaching and life counseling. In 2016 I launched this program Peace via Dialogue - Boxing for Peace, for Africa, Uganda, and beyond. I do the program work on a donation basis, for some good causes, and your help (donation) is very welcome too.  You can follow me on social media (Facebook, Instagram), LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube). 

Cause 1: I founded an NGO in 2016, in Zana, Kampala (Uganda), Zana Social Development Organisation, website https://www.zanasocialdevelopment.org. 
We need to set-up an office, supply materials for workshops, and we need more start-up budget for our empowerment projects.

Then, thin wires:  This is about weakening vulnerable women by playing with their emotions. financially using them and being unresponsible. Actually it is about violating the human rights of these women.  It happens, everywhere. And I don´t like that. That is why I decided to do something about it (story telling, life counseling, boxing for peace, restorative circles and empowerment), starting with Ugandans.  

Where I get my inspiration from: Among others Uganda. This led to this new cause, in a nutshell described here gf.me/u/zn64dv (copy the link and paste it into your internet browser).
