-- Ambassador Sanders appeared on Al Jazeera (AJA) News on December 3, 2021, to talk, in general, about the continuing rise and expansion of jihadist activity in the Sahel as insecurity concerns reached a peak with massive street protests in Burkina Faso's capital, Ouagadougou, over the last few months. Protesters are demanding the government improve security and the protection of civilians against the uptick of violence, murder, and human rights abuses, leading to the resignation of the country's Prime Minister, Christophe Dabire, and a care-taker government in response. Meanwhile, the insecurity driven by terrorist attacks continues unabated. Click link to see the AJA news interview with Amb. Sanders: https://youtu.be/cSnTIyLUrzo

-- Dr. Sanders also interviewed with Al Jazeera news on another local terrorist concern in Sub Saharan Africa -- groups with jihadists-links, expanding into the Ugandan-Eastern Congo border area. Her interview focuses on the recent approval by the government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) regarding its decision to allow Uganda forces to initiate hot pursuit to enter DRC as well as participate in joint military operations in DRC to help quell the large uptick in violence on the border.  Uganda has also blamed the recent bombings and protest in its capital, Kampala, by these same groups, particularly the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) working with the support and sometimes direction of outside jihadists elements from the Islamic State and any of its affiliates.

I. The Advocacy Initiative called FEEEDS  

FEEEDS Advocacy Initiative (full name):

What does FEEEDS® or the FEEEDS Advocacy Initiative mean? FEEEDS is an acronym that encompasses some of the main global issues of today-- Food Security, Education, Environment-Energy, Economics, Democracy-Development and Self-help -- that both developed and developing countries are grappling with in order to address and resolve the challenges for the world community and assist with poverty alleviation. The acronym represents the first letter of these word-phrases, and is a small Africa Intermediary Organization (AIO) working with underserved communities and groups using its voice to advocate for change and educate on the FEEEDS issues. 

All of the FEEEDS issues are also connected to human cultural communication and how we relate as people and as nations to each other. FEEEDS represents the first letter of each word or word-phrase noted above.

FEEEDS Advocacy Initiative provides lectures, contributions to Think Tank panels, provides training on FEEEDS issues and other global topics, and works with African Diaspora Groups and Small and Medium Size Enterprises, AGOA, and US-Africa Trade.
