50 years of FK exchanges: 1963-2013

Kampala – I am proud to have been part of the Fredskorpset (FK) exchange programme (2008-2009). I served as Socio-Environmental journalist to Kenya with Vihiga Community Development Organisation (VCDO) based in Sabatia, Western Kenya through Rural Development Media Communication (RUDMEC).

FK or call it the Peace Corps, has for over 50 years contributed to development by bringing people together to learn, share and understand. Since 1963, more than 7,500 volunteers traveled to another country in exchange.

On 29th November, 2013, the Norwegian Embassy in Uganda together with FK-Uganda programme office, Uganda Media Women’s Association, Mama FM, former and current participants and partner organisations, celebrated 50 years of cooperation with Uganda through the FK exchange programme.
