Martin Luther King Junior Foundation (LUKMEF)

Update on the Words Across The World Project

A few years ago I took a trip to Central Africa (to Limbe, Cameron) where I became acquainted with an organization called the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Foundation (LUKMEF). The foundation was founded on the principles of nonviolence and promotion of human values and its efforts include HIV/AIDS education and reduction of poverty through training and job placement.

As a result of the trip I made a personal commitment to send the Foundation’s resource library books, which they are very much in need of. People travel from surrounding areas to use the library and it is the primary location used by the local University, which is located near the Foundation’s office. With the help of friends who donated the books and some financial support from the Fairfield, CT rotary, a few years ago, I sent 800 books to the library. All types of books were sent, including the topics of computers, children’s books, humanity, social sciences and development issues, medical and the arts. Last year collected 1,700 books for shipment. Shipping to Africa is very expensive (postage, customs and tariff fees) and though the Rotary has once again supported the project, additional funds or donated shipping services were needed.

For the most recent shipment of books, due to the generosity of the United States Navy, the books have now been delivered to Africa, carried to Cameroon by the African Partnership Station (APS-SWIFT).. This shipment of books range from academic text books, health, computers, development, novels, management text books, religion and spirituality, hotel management, cookery, children books, etc. The Navy’s Africa Partnership Station, or APS is part of a long-term commitment on the part of all participating nations and organizations from Africa, the United States, Europe and South America. Part of their mission is to participate in community outreach projects. We are hopeful that a long-term working relationship with the Navy will now be established.

I have now shifted my attention to working on the organizations Department of Arts for Peace Program, which is part of its African Institute for Peace, Democracy and Development program. Visit www.lukmefcameroon.org for more information.

From the API website:
The The African Institute for Peace, Democracy and Development sets out to provide a platform for peace education, with focus on two major segments: - Cultural Peace Issues and Policy Issues. It is our understanding that citizens of any community in pursuance of happiness, must seek to develop their communities, nations, regions and continent. In so doing, people must fully understand and actively implement peace values, non-violence, social justice, and good governance as prerequisites for sustainable development. To maintain peace, the absence of war is necessary, and must become a reality that is sustained through peace education, systematic and total disarmament and control of conventional and small arms proliferation. The The African Institute for Peace, Democracy and Development therefore in its program and infrastructural design has taken into consideration cultural and policy peace issues by providing facilities for continuous and certificate learning for aspiring peace activists, and a home for peace exchange programs. It will provide an ideal environment for mediation and dialogue between individuals, communities, and nations as well as a solemn environment for national, regional, continental and global peace programming.
