Its also broadcasted in Monrovia, Liberia, Lusaka, Zambia, and Kigali Rwanda. The One Tribe programme combines a biblical worldview, academic peace constructs/principles and a community-based model of learning.
On Monday 29th October 2018, Elizabeth Hankins, Executive Director,
OneTribe, Fred Maziina, and other colleagues visited BOSCO Uganda to initiate progress on the new Partnership to preach “PEACE” to the communities of Northern Uganda who suffered over two decades of civil war and now resettled after the signing of the peace deal in 2007.
One Tribe’s story begins in South Sudan – arcs outward to its border regions then stretches beyond into other African nations impacted by civil war and violence.
When South Sudan became a nation in July 2011, it seemed a time to heal and rebuild this country torn by decades of war and division. Empowering local people to lift themselves out of poverty seemed to mean working with leaders to address critical matters such as access to clean water, female health, and economic opportunity. These were indeed valuable first steps.
But when South Sudan returned to war in December 2013, it became clear to One Tribe that although these steps were invaluable and necessary, a God-centered peace was essential to the survival of this country. And such a peace needed to be etched out from within, highly accessible, adaptive and easy to put into practice.
The One Tribe Radio Drama for the meantime has 52 Educative audio Episodes through which it empowers local people in divided Societies to build a God-Centred Peace fro grassroots-up.
Once the Operating Agreement gets sealed, BOSCO Uganda will use its already existing infrastructure the Internet and Intranet to preach Peace to the people of Northern Uganda since Peace is not only the absence of Civil war.
