Pan-African Reconciliation Centre

The Pan-African Reconciliation Centre (PARC) began as the Pan-African Reconciliation Council in 1988. PARC is a grassroots community of people committed to the promotion of peace, human rights, social justice and passive resistance to all forms of violence and oppression. The Centre strives to achieve total emancipation of Africa and its siblings in the Diaspora from the bondages of ignorance, disease and wants through active nonviolence and self-giving love. By setting up information, research and communication programmes, PARC helps political authorities make the right decisions.

PARC seeks to mobilise public opinion and signature campaigns to eliminate threats to peace, not only in Africa, but throughout the world. Its 700 members include educational institutions, religious organisations and individuals in some twelve African countries and in Europe. The Centre's newsletter can be accessed electronically from their website.

Currently PARC projects focus on:

Educational Resources for International Peace
PARC sponsors capacity seminars, conferences, symposia, colloquia and other consultations designed to provide training in nonviolence, social justice, reconciliation, and peace education to people in conflict areas. Faith-oriented educational resources on the above subjects are provided as part of the PARC's interfaith activities. The Centre is also the focal organization for the Hague Appeal for Peace in the West African sub-region.

Mediating Social Conflicts
PARC conducts research and collects data on the causes of inter-communal conflicts. It plays a mediator role and provides early warning on conflicts within and amongst African communities. It also undertakes grassroots campaigns for peace, human rights, self-determination and self-reliance, and co-ordinates an international campaign to eliminate child abuse and discrimination against women. Relief materials and welfare services are also organized for displaced persons.

Ugandan World Federalists

Ugandan World Federalists (UWF) began as the Ugandan Youth Federal Alliance (1993) to promote federalism and constitutional democracy in both Uganda and Africa. Now, registered as a non-profit under the name African Federation Association World Federalists Movement of Uganda (AFA WFM Uganda), membership is open to all citizens of African Nations and of the world. Members believe that the key to reducing human rights abuses, maintaining peace, and bringing sustainable prosperity to the African continent depends on fighting corruption and promoting accountability and transparency amongst African nations. A democratic African Union is the first step in this process.

WFM Uganda is looking forward to supporting and implementing WFM projects in Africa, as well as working with any organisations in the world that promote culture, heritage, federalism, self-determination, good governance, world law and world peace.

Currently Ugandan World Federalists direct projects encompassing:

Pan-African Federalism
UWF/AFA WFM Uganda runs various campaigns, seminars, workshops and conferences to promote federalism and enlarge WFM membership throughout Africa. Specifically, it is working on a self-determination and federalism project for the Buganda Kingdom with Én Verden, global vote projects and Human Rights projects with WFBN (WFM Netherlands), and promotion of the United Nations Parliamentary Assembly with KDUN (The Committee for a Democratic U.N.).

International Law and Justice
UWF/AFA WFM Uganda initiated a project campaign to promote the Coalition for the International Criminal Court in Africa by developing resources for victims, and organizing workshops to explain the benefits of the International Criminal Court in fostering world peace, defending human rights and promoting greater levels of human security.

Promoting Peace and Security
UWF/AFA WFM Uganda also believe that maintaining peace and security necessitates a greater level of transparency among nation-states, a more concerted campaign against political corruption, and a spreading of democratic ideals. In April 2008, the visit of WFM-IGP Executive Director to WFM Uganda offices in Uganda boosted support for the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) project in cooperation with the Uganda Parliament.
