The location [in Hiroshima] made it deeply moving and memorable. — Mahishini Colonne, UNITAR Hiroshima Nuclear Disarmament and Non-proliferation Training Programme (2019)
The programme is an eye opener for those with a calling to bring positive change to humanity. — Jane Marete, Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Leadership Training for Women Entrepreneurs in Africa
