Due to lots of changes, we haven’t written a blog for a while. So if you haven’t seen it already, do have a read of this account of locally-rooted peacebuilding work by our colleague Benard Agona from AfriNov.

In this blog, Agona describes the incredible work that AfriNov colleagues tirelessly engaged in – before, during, and after the 2022 elections in Kenya. The importance of peace actors in preventing election violence in the 2022 Kenyan elections is highlighted by Saferworld.

Our colleagues in Rwanda and Burundi have also engaged in rich peacebuilding and nonviolence work this year. We are also mindful that the work of all our colleagues in East Africa, is taking place amidst a very tricky global context.
