 Survivor Corps Africa Program Associate Robert Mugisha was honored as an Ambassador for Peace by the Universal Peace Federation.

 

Washington, DC - Universal Peace Federation recently announced that GSPM alumnus, Robert Mugisha, has been named as an Ambassador for Peace.

Mugisha was born in Uganda with Rwandan parents. He is the Africa Program Coordinator for Survivor Corps, Washington, DC. Robert, works with various groups of survivors of conflict, such as victims of rape, former rebel abducted children, survivors of genocide, amputees and disabled people. Additionally, he helps them in their recovery and reintegration.

Robert said, “The award was a surprise to me…I feel very honored to be recognized. It is the most amazing award I have received in my time in the U.S.

The Ambassadors for Peace Initiative, launched in 2001, has become the world's largest and most diverse network of peace leaders from all races, religions, nationalities and cultures -- all committed to promoting reconciliation, overcoming barriers, and building peace.

 

Dr. Steven Billet, Director of the Legislative Affairs Program, said, “Robert Mugisha provides a role model for all of us at the GSPM. His initiative, dedication and perseverance in advancing the causes of social justice, development and peace are exemplary.”
