In Kenya, partnering with Pact Kenya we will hold a Trauma Healing and Social Reconciliation Workshop to develop a team of trainers/experts in the region to enhance the sustainability of people to people/social reconciliation processes. By helping individuals deal with trauma, we hope to improve relationships between communities in the area and create environments more receptive to peace-building interventions.
In Tanzania, along with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and DFID, we are procuring $10 million in contraceptives to avoid stock-outs. The event will be used as a platform to advocate for adequate budgeting and disbursement to ensure contraceptive supply in public sector health facilities. We will also use the event to highlight the positive outcomes from donor partnership and coordination.
In the West Bank, we will hold our biannual press round table to update the local West Bank media of USAID activities in the area. We will do the same in Jerusalem with Gaza journalists.
