In 2019, the Shalom-SCCRR Programs were designed with visionary activities to transform conflict, counter religious ideological extremism, and sustain peacebuilding progress between ethnic communities through sustainable peace and development activities. The key components and outputs in this methodology and process, ultimately oriented to reconciliation, are outlined below. This work amounts to a considerable effort on behalf of the Shalom-SCCRR team to plan and insert itself into these remote, marginalized and dangerous conflict environments across East Africa. With the highest degree of professionalism and ethical standards, the Shalom-SCCRR teams exceeded its targets for the year. At the core of Shalom-SCCRR activities are the communities that we serve, who are inspired by a shared vision of living in a peaceful co-existence, characterized by a desire for interdependence and an appreciation of the other.
Shalom-SCCRR is grateful to all our donors, partners, and stakeholders across the various international units for their unwavering support and encouragement to the organization’s methodology and work in Africa. Shalom-SCCRR appreciates the work of Rev. Dr. Patrick Devine, our international chairman, not only within Kenya but for the promotion, expansion and structuring of the organization internationally. His role is invaluable for the advancement of the cause of peaceful co-existence among peoples in Africa and strengthening the resolve to work together for a just, peaceful and reconciled society. Already in 2020, Shalom-SCCRR is very active in the field consolidating and building on the considerable progress made last year towards sustained peace and development.
