Project Updates
Sri Lanka
Shira Loewenberg, Director, had a very informative and productive visit to Outward Bound Sri
Lanka in March. We wish to thank Raj Subramaniam, Executive Director of Outward Bound
Trust Sri Lanka (OBTSL), his Board of Directors and Staff for their kindness during her visit.
Ms. Loewenberg had the opportunity to discuss with them details of the program, and to observe
two OBTSL programs in the field. Ms. Loewenberg met with a number of organizations and
individuals interested in the Sri Lanka Outward Bound Peacebuilding Program, including UNDP,
the Asian Development Bank and the National Peace Council of Sri Lanka.
Middle East
Outward Bound Canada has been selected by the Outward Bound Center for Peacebuilding to be
the lead delivery school in implementing the 2008 Middle East program. The staff of the program
will also include representation from the region. Plans for the program are being discussed with
the programmatic partner and will be announced shortly.
Outward Bound Center for Peacebuilding consultant, Julie Burns, traveled to Rwanda in early
March with the Executive Director of Outward Bound South Africa, Jacques De Jongh. The visit
resulted in a report that Outward Bound Rwanda and its Director, Ndekezi Maarifa Vincent, and
its Board of Directors are progressing with plans and meeting their planned milestones. The visit
also allowed for several recommendations on how Outward Bound Rwanda’s supporters may best
be of service to Outward Bound Rwanda as it continues to progress in capacity-building, training
and fundraising for program activities in the future.
