Building Peaceful Hearts in Families and Workplaces

Some of the Sudanese in Calgary Canada campaigning for a peaceful Referendum

The formation of Hearts 4 Peace Consulting Inc was inspired by the practical and hands-on teachings in adult and peace education, and general community-based development paradigms at the Coady International Institute of St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish Nova Scotia Canada.

The founder of H4P Mr. Sam Madesi is a former graduate of the Coady and thereafter, an Associate Lecturer at the institute that brings together participants from over 50 different countries around the world every year.  Born in Uganda, Madesi’s childhood interests in peace education were boosted by his experiences working with various peacebuilding organizations with a focus on families, organizational change management, and later his numerous research pieces on family and workplace peacebuilding in various countries around the world.

His early interactions with various professionals in adult and peace education, led to the formation of H4P’s animating team that every individual, family, workplace staff, politicians, lawyers, social workers … would want to meet.
