Peace-building in Africa

  • May 25, 2007 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 2:34PM

Kim Bush and Judy Friesem took a message of dispute resolution. Even before they met, Kim Bush and Judy Friesem shared a passion for Africa. Bush spent 1963 and 1964 in Tanzania and in South Africa, where he joined the anti-apartheid movement and began a life of activism. Friesem, meanwhile, adored Africa’s landscapes. As a child, she devoured “Born Free” and Joy Adamson’s other wildlife books. She later became enamored of the continent’s music and cultural vibrancy. In couple-hood, the two developed a vision of integrating their mutual passion and their life’s work – he as an educator, she as a mediator – into a peace building mission to African nations hard-hit by recurring conflict. “We’d been daring ourselves to do it,” Bush said.
