Our work in Sub-Saharan Africa is delivered in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Sudan, South Sudan, Uganda and Nigeria.
In the region there are 120 trained Active Citizens.
In Kenya, the Active Citizens programme has drawn participants from eleven communities that were particularly affected by post election violence in 2007/2008: Kwale, Msambweni, Ndeffo, Njoro, likia, Kuresoi, Olmoran, Sotik/Borabu, Transkuria, Rongo and Mt.Elgon.
Using the Active Citizens methodology, the British Council in Sudan submitted a proposal for a European Parliament pilot project targeting youth in the Horn of Africa (HoA) which was accepted by the European Union.
