Actually OST started in Africa, at least as far as I am concerned. I think
I told that tale in a number of places. So Michael's story about the
Bishops doesn't surprise me. In Southern Africa they call it Indaba -- and
in the West -- Palaver.... So yes OST is/was/will be alive and well in
Africa. Works wonderful there as (apparently) anywhere else. Not
incidentally Peace Corps has used it quite extensively all over. As for
facilitators, there are several in South Africa, and elsewhere for sure.
