Working to End the Cycle of Violence in the Tribal Lands of Eastern Africa

We can't have sustainable development without peace.

EU Development Council – “We can’t have sustainable development without peace.”

EU Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Development meet in Brussels on 19 May 2017 to address the humanitarian situation in Africa, Yemen and Syria. They are also discussing the future of EU-ACP relations and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda on sustainable development.

In the meeting, Joe McHUGH, Minister of State for the Diaspora and Overseas Development of Ireland “We can’t have sustainable development without peace.” and he “pointed to the great work being done in Northern Kenya by a group called Shalom. Interethnic conflict reconciliation where for the 1st time in a particular region even with drought and massive challenges the peace is holding. So we have to look at the solutions. My message today from Ireland to Europe was if there are examples working, we should look at them, we should support them.”

Please help Shalom continue its work to advance peace and provide a future for the people of Northern Kenya.
