The   Hope    Project

 


 

The Hope Project is an agency which used to offer consultancy and training in peace building skills and the creative handling of conflict. We also offer yoga training and materials to help with relaxation and inner peacefulness. We began the Project in 1994. We have worked mainly in our own area, the West Midlands of England.

In Belarus, Ukraine, and Uganda, we helped to introduce and develop peace education in schools between 1990 and 2006.   Our visits to  Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia and Makedonia in support of local peace education groups ran from 1996 to 2013.   John has also been involved with anti-landmines work and community peacebuilding in Western Uganda.  The most recent initiative there was a three-year programme to develop a culture of peace.

As we both approach the age of eighty, we are no longer involved in ongoing projects, apart from John’s continuing links with Uganda.   But we are still happy to speak about our experiences and to meet people developing new intitatives which they would like to discuss with us.
