Dr. Ngalamu is visiting the United States as part of a collaborative project with Iowa State University to develop strategies for integrating Peace Education and Pluralistic Concepts across the curriculum in secondary schools in southern Sudan.
Dr.Ngalamu is also a member of Board of Education of the Episcopal Church of Sudan. He returned to Sudan in 2007 from exile in the UK, where he received a PhD from the University of London, and served as chairman of the Sudan Relief and Rehabilitation Association, the relief wing of the Sudan Peoples Liberation Movement.
Over two million persons from the largely Christian and African traditionalists population of South Sudan were killed during the two decades of the North-South conflict, and five million more were displaced. A fragile peace has held there since the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Accord, in which the United States helped broker. The North-South war was triggered when Khartoum threatened to forcibly impose sharia law on the non-Muslim south and the south rebelled.
