      I interviewed Yunus recently:

      Hi David then all,

      Thanks for your pragmatic plans.
      We have not communicated since we were together at the seminar preliminary to the Peace Caravan.
      The Caravan was quite an eye opening and motivating journey full of positive challenges.

      I note your interest in having a copy of the Mohamed Yunus book "How to change the world".
      There has been growing interest for other quaters.
      Many others who have seen and peeped or brushed through the book have been equally impressed by the intellectual contents of the book.
      While in Lithuania I received six copies from Pam of which i distributed to Rachel, Sam, and the other four to Nafsi members (Kenneth, Regan, James and Job)
      My plan was to form a Readers group/team who would be meeting regularly in open face to face forums or virtually to discuss the topics.
      Unfortunately i have lately been overtaken by so much deadlines to beat and lack time enough to co-ordinate the group.

      I will request back three books from Nafsi members and distribute them to interested parties who are MSlab participants, who prove to be commtited in the discussions and putting into practice what we learn.
      Nafsi members will remain with one book which will be used in rotational basis.
      I hope to give David and Emmanuel the priority of having a book each.
      I request Pam to enable the possibility of getting and sending more books especially to  commited MSl participants.

      My last request goes out to all those who got a copy of the Yunus book from me to make a point of being in the chat that Pam is organising for 5th June to share our impressions.
      Let's cultivate a reading culture that yields practical developments and further nourishes our thinkings.

      All the best,

      > Good to know you are back to MSL, have had a discussion with Lawrence Achami on establishing an ICT enabled Peace and development center in Kuresoi as a follow up efforts of the peace work that has been done by POP and others and tying peace work with ICT efforts, this is thought to be a pilot project that can be replicated to other areas, Achami suggested that ICT acitivity will engage the youths that have been used in any fight over years in the area and will get many people informed, ICT center with a radio station might be an ideal thing for Achami and others advocating for peace to spread the information and development broadcasts.

By the way, my absence is no reflection on Minciu Sodas. I do want to get back again. It is just that when we were so active with PoP many other things got pushed aside - and so it has been necessary to give those things more time for a while. When I have "caught up with myself" I hope to be back here again.

If anyone has a copy of the Yunus book (Creating a World Without Poverty) - please look at it again before the meeting so we can share our impressions with each other - and with people who have not seen it yet.
