Dennis, Thank you. They sound like a dedicated group of people. I
suppose there are many ways they can go forward. If there is some
outside group that might pay me significantly ($25,000 for previous work
in Kenya plus $10,000 per month) then I could work as I did in the
Pyramid of Peace. Otherwise, I don't know what I could contribute, but
certainly others might.
Hello Dear Friends
I attach a profile sent to me my Abdul who i met while in Tanzania and
they are keen to work and help there fellow youth in Somalia they have
there numbers there and can be assisted for a better Somalia.
Kind Regards Always

Hi I spoke with Dennis and he met some Somalians who learned about the
Pyramid of Peace http://www.pyramido fpeace.net and would like to do
something similar there.
I need to focus on my financial situation. One thing that I can do and
should do is to write to Kofi Annan on behalf of myself and perhaps he
could fund my work in Somalia.
My phone number in Austria is:
My Skype is:
Dennis will write to Holistic Helping but I imagine that I would work on
this at Fighting Peacefully.
