                              It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the
                              Republic of South Africa, the Western Cape Province,
                              and the beautiful city of Cape Town. It is an honor for
                              the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Walter
                              Sisulu University to jointly host the Second Biennial
                              “International Workshop on Global Perspectives in
                              Education: Emerging Challenges, Opportunities and
                              Innovative Approaches.” International education is of
                              paramount importance in this era of globalization.
                              We are convinced that, collectively, our deliberations
                              will be rewarded with invaluable outcomes, which will         Dr. Thelma B. Thompson
Dr. Malusi M. Balintulo
                              enhance international education.

     The topics selected for the workshop are timely and critical for the elementary through high school system,
     tertiary education, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, as well as government agencies.
     The workshop is designed to encourage active participation of all attendees. Consequently, you will have
     opportunities to share experiences through small group discussions and exchanges of ideas, and to explore
     innovative approaches which will lead to recommended initiatives that will foster sustainable international
     education partnerships.

     UMES and WSU are committed to student centeredness. Thus, a special session entitled “Student’s
     Perspectives and Experiences in International Education” was created. In this session, those of us who
     are educators and policymakers can be informed by the students we seek to educate and positively
     influence.

     In addition to the general program, we are privileged to have as our Keynote Speakers, on Monday and
     Tuesday respectively, His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the King of Asante of Ghana, a renowned
     leader in international education, and the Honorable Rebecca Garang deMaboir, Presidential Advisor for
     Gender & Human Rights of Southern Sudan, and wife of the Late Dr. John Garang deMaboir, the first
     President of Southern Sudan.

     We trust that you will enjoy the Second Biennial Global Education Workshop, and we encourage you to
     network among yourselves as ideas arise and, of course, find time to enjoy the outstanding facilities that
     the Southern Sun Cullinan Hotel offers, and the rich cultural heritage of Cape Town.

     UMES and WSU wish for each participant a productive, successful, and pleasant workshop.

     Once again, welcome to the beautiful city of Cape Town!

                                           Keynote Speaker

                                     His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II was installed as the 16 th
                                     occupant of the Golden Stool in May 1999 in succession to his brother
                                     Otumfuo Opoku Ware II. He holds a degree in Human Resources from
                                     the University of North London. He worked variously in the United

                                     1990s to establish his private business.

                                     He was selected among seven contestants for the stool because of his
                                     affability, vision, hard work, forthrightness, and humility. For the last
                                     eight years that he has been on the throne, His Majesty has given the
                                     chieftaincy institution a refreshing and high profile. His own initiatives
                                     are transforming parts of Asante and Ghana in the areas of education,
                                     health and capacity building for traditional leaders. He has drawn the
                                     attention of national and international donor agencies to his vision of
                                     giving traditional authorities a more defined partnership role in
   His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei
                Tutu II
                                     development. He has made impact on the World Bank and other
     The King of Asante, Ghana       international bodies with his vision, and has, whenever he has traveled,
                                     portrayed the rich culture of his people. He has always emphasized that
traditional leaders have a role in partnering government to deliver development to their communities. He
has traveled widely in Africa, the United States of America, Great Britain, and the Netherlands on official
cultural visits.

At home, Otumfuo has received important dignitaries at his Manhyia Palace: the long list includes the
former president of the World Bank, James Wolfensohn, the Libyan Leader Muamar Al Gaddafi, President

Eastern Shore; the University of Ghana, Legon; the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and

                    Honorable Rebecca Garang de Maboir
     Presidential Advisor for Gender & Human Rights - Southern Sudan


Honorable Rebecca Garang de Maboir, is a Sudanese politician. She has previously served as
the Minister of Roads and Transport in the Government of Southern Sudan, and is currently one
of the Advisors to the President of Southern Sudan. She is the widow of Dr. John Garang de
Maboir, the first Vice-President of Sudan and the President of the Government of Southern
Sudan. She is from the Dinka tribe of Bor of Southern Sudan.

She is known for her support for the right of self-determination for Southern Sudan although she
has nothing against the United Sudan under a democratic rule of law.

She received her education both in Sudan and in the United States of America where she and her
late husband Dr. John Garang lived for many years.

Mrs. Rebecca Garang de Maboir is fluent in English and many other languages. She is widely
respected for her role in encouraging the people of Southern Sudan to stand united and strong,
when the untimely death of her charismatic husband, Dr. John Garang, shocked the nation of
Sudan.

Mrs. Garang’s new governmental role is far from a symbolic position. She serves as Minister for
Roads and Transportation for Southern Sudan, a vital developmental post in the war-ravaged
south, where decent roads, schools, hospitals, and infrastructure are largely non-existent. But
Mrs. Garang de Maboir doesn’t see promoting development in Sudan as the job of government
alone. Long before she became a government official, Mrs. Garang was personally initiating
development in the south by starting a privately funded primary school for children, especially
those orphaned or disabled. Eight years later, the school has 785 students, ages 5 to 18, and she
is presently raising money to build a high school.

        Reverend Dr. Bongani Blessing Finca, Provincial Electoral Officer
        Independent Electoral Commissions, East Capern – South Africa
The Reverend Bongani Blessing Finca was born in the small rural village of Imbendle, Natal, in South
Africa on July 5, 1953. As an African in an apartheid South Africa, he grew up in a society where white
people dominated and discriminated against black people. From a young age of 14 years, he committed
his life to the struggle for the liberation of South Africa. For this reason he went to prison several times
and was expelled from educational institutions of higher learning because of his political convictions and
activities.

He resolved to become a Minister of Religion and obtained a degree in Theology in 1974. In 1979 and
1980 he studied international politics in England and Scotland, respectively. As a leading member of his
society, he became involved in the fierce and painful struggle against apartheid up to 1994, and in the
rebirth of the New South Africa from 1994 onwards. He served as Minister-in-Charge of the Reformed
Presbyterian Church, South Africa, 1985-1995.

Reverend Finca has been part and parcel, and has played a significant and leading role in the miracle
that has happened in South Africa, which has astonished the whole world. He was a leading member of
the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that was led by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, which laid the
groundwork for peace and reconciliation between the different races in South Africa.

Today he plays an important role as a permanent member of the Independent Electoral Commission of
South Africa, established to uphold constitutional democracy and manage free and fair elections in which
all South Africans participate as equals.

Dr. Finca had an impeccable record as the Chairperson of the Governing Council of Border Technikon
through many turbulent years, and he has held many positions on Boards and Commissions throughout
the years.

He is married to Naniswa, and they have three children.
