The Africa Faith and Justice Network (AFJN) is so grateful for your prayers and support this year. Together we have been able to do amazing things with our partners on the continent of Africa and here at home on behalf of justice. You have been with us throughout 2020 sharing in our triumphs and also in our frustrations due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Your support enabled religious sisters in Uganda, Nigeria, and Ghana to hold in-person and online workshops with youth, religious, community members, and leaders on important issues including sexual and domestic violence against women and children and COVID-19 best practices. Your support is empowering the people of Africa to identify injustice and challenge leaders to support just governance and justice in their homes, schools, and communities.
