Your outstanding support for the Africa Faith & Justice Network propelled us to new frontiers in Africa and in the United States.
Our advocacy in Washington, education programs and outreach through the media grew stronger. Many young Americans participated in our internship program and were exposed to US-Africa policy issues and corporate intrusions into African local communities. We facilitated their research on the impact of these incursions on the lives and future of our brothers and sisters in Africa. Some of their research are published on our website.
Within Africa, we engaged Church leaders on just governance, social analysis and advocacy flowing out of the Gospel and Catholic Social Teaching, and they took well documented actions as a result of our workshops.
Women religious in Ghana, Tanzania and Nigeria took bold steps to address some social ills in their countries, especially human trafficking and violence against women and children. More communities now realize the implications of land grabbing, toxic dumping and the challenge Genetically Modified Seeds pose to their food sovereignty, water sources, land and way of life. The insights gained from our partnership with African communities have enriched our advocacy efforts in the United States.
Thank you for your continued support as we work with our African brothers and sisters to advance just governance and the common good and forge a better society where their dignity as God’s children is enhance. Click here to download full annual report
