During 2018, PENHA in partnership with Kent-based charities and colleges had successfully delivered a youth-focused project in Kent that helped over 450 young unaccompanied asylum seekers who are originally from the Horn of Africa. With grant support from National Lottery, our youth project has supported the youth with career building, and social cohesion and integration opportunities to improve their lives and reach their potentials.
Given the alarming food shortage of the Greater Horn of Africa, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) which includes Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan and Uganda calls for a robust and proactive intervention to avoid a catastrophic human and livestock situation during the conference held in Nairobi on 17th April 2019, as reported by Amy McConaghy.
