Dar es Salaam - Saturday 17 October 2020 - Exchange on social and environmental justice

We just formed a new committee recently due to the corona pandemic. We took time to review the concept note of October 17, the World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty. Our first preparatory meeting took place early August. Since then we meet once a week. The campaign has already started and it will go on until one day before election day, 27th of October, ten days after 17th of October.

We plan to organise soon a one day sharing and exchange event which we hope to bring together practitioners working in our activity areas and persons with the experience of poverty. The idea is to reflect "together" on this year's theme from the viewpoint of our localities. The results of the exchange will be part of the presentation on October 17.

Wishing you all the best in the preparations of the day,

Constantine S.
