Why Women are Needed to Help End Violence in Africa

Women are the key to reconciliation in both the family and society. This was the message given to women from nearly twenty countries across Africa who convened this week in Nairobi, Kenya for “The African Women Moving Towards the African Year of Reconciliation” conference.

The three-day meeting was organized by the Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM) in collaboration with the Association of Member Episcopal Conferences in Eastern Africa (AMECEA) with the support of Missio.

The theme of reconciliation is particularly relevant in the African church this year, as in June SECAM launched the African Year of Reconciliation in conjunction with its 46th anniversary of its founding.
