Luke Studied English and Drama at the University of Winchester; the Drama developed into Drama-teaching and he was teaching skills such as personal development, confidence, self-esteem and Peace studies to various age ranges and abilities from very young to vulnerable adults to the elderly. Luke helped to start the first Winchester Rotaract Club and they ran many projects from homelessness to elderly work to education, after several years Luke was then voted as Chair of UK Rotaract for the 17/18 year.
Rotary led his introduction to PeaceJam (www.peacejam.org) – an international peace organization that works with the Nobel peace prize laureates and young people. He attended a conference with Desmond Tutu and mentored 20 young people over a weekend, Luke was so impressed by the conference that he brought the idea back to Winchester and founded a PeaceJam Winchester within the University- (www.peacejam.org.uk).
They have now held four big conferences, one with Jody Williams; first conference by Luke and then 2016 with Rigoberta Menchu Tum; Second Conference by Luke, last year was Leymeh Gbowee, and then just in March 2018 they had Yemeni Laureate Tawakkol Karman. Luke first came to Uganda in 2014, on a Winchester Rotarian’s visit with the Education Uganda team, where he met the Rotaract Club of Kasese and a great friendship was formed!”
