Kenyans launch National Dialogue Process
On September 11-13, some 500 Kenyans from all over the country met to launch an inclusive and structured national dialogue process at Nairobi’s historic Ufungamano House. Under the aegis of Kenya’s religious leaders, the first National Dialogue Conference (NDC1) convened men and women, youth, people with disabilities and organisations charged with their representation, as well as civil society, trade unions and the private sector. Ahead of the dialogue, NOREF provided preparatory training to 37 women taking part in the process.
