  1. I am really exited to learn of the Achievement of Nancy Flowers, I met Nancy Flowers 19years ago in Pretoria South Africa when I attended a workshop where Amnesty International South Africa was making their first HRE Strategy for that country.
    I am a Zambian and a passionate HR educator who was the National Coordinator for Human Rights Education at that time. I have always wanted to link up with Nancy Flowers over the years but this has not been possible… “Please Link Me Up” to this Gallant HRE Specialist because I really want to learn “hills” from her.
