The LTAS Spotlight, this month, features Host Kula V. Fofana. Kula was honored by the Universal Peace Federation and the Youth Federation for World Peace as a Young Peace Ambassador. The occasion was the Global Peace Tour 2009 in Monrovia. Speaking to the LTAS News team after the program, Ms. Fofana dedicated the honor to the young people of Liberia, especially females. “I will prefer you calling me Ambassador Fofana”, she joked.
The Young Peace Ambassadorial title is conferred on young individuals whose lives exemplify the ideal of living for the sake of others, and who dedicate themselves to practices that promote universal moral values, strong family life, inter-religious cooperation, international harmony, and the establishment of a culture of peace.
In a related development, Kula has also been elected Co-Focal Person for the Inter Faith Actions for Peace in Africa (IFAPA- Liberia Charter), a continental institution that strives to forge peace in Africa, using inter-faith perspectives.
