Kenya: new AEFJN Antenna

A new AEFJN antenna was launched in Nairobi on February 16, 2018. The launch was preceded by a two-day workshop on Advocacy and AEFJN itself. The antenna is anchored by the Conferences of Major Superiors of Kenya. Previously, the two conferences (of male & female religious congregations) worked independently of each other but AEFJN is now a common voice for them both on matters of economic justice.


A structure to coordinate the antenna’s activities for the next year has been set up. The antenna has chosen the theme of Tax Evasion/Money Laundering for their advocacy activities and will soon be meeting to develop their Plan of Action. The Secretariat is grateful to the UK antenna and the Executive for their support in setting up the new antenna. The UK antenna has further committed itself to working closely with the Kenyan antenna.

“AEFJN listens to the voice of Africa... brings this voice to the EU, and insists on the right and the responsibility of Africans to make their own policy for development”.
