Afri’s vision is of a more just, peaceful, equal and sustainable world. Afri seeks to inform debate and influence policy and practice in Ireland and internationally on human rights, peace, global justice, and sustainability issues.
Afri particularly responds to injustice caused by militarisation, and by environmental destruction and resource depletion. We do this through analysis, education and action in solidarity with marginalised people in the ‘Global South’ and also in Ireland and elsewhere in the so-called ‘developed world’.
In 2017 Afri will host the 30th famine walk from Louisburgh, Co. Mayo along with a commemorative CD featuring many of the distinguished artists who played at the walks over the years. Join us on the 20th May 2017 for a historic walk.
Afri supports the work of the Kenya Pastoralist Journalist Network (KPJN). The KPJN promotes sustainable development, and engages in conflict resolution and the protection of human rights. Abjata Khalif is founder and director of KPJN.
