Home |  News | Side by Side participates in 2019 Faith and Gender International Conference

The 2019 Ekklesia and CBE International Conference focused on “Man and Woman, One in Christ: Engaging Faith Narrative for Justice & Equality”. The conference brought together 98 faith actors and leaders from across Africa including Uganda, Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Malawi, Tanzania, Rwanda and other parts of the world.

The dynamic conference programme was a space to explore gender dynamics and attitude within the church and community and its impact on human relationship. More specifically this conference explored biblical and gender lenses for equality, justice and shared relationship between women and men in the church, home and society. Side by Side was honoured to be invited to give a keynote, which Global Steering Group member, Jane Machira gave. Her talk focused on the power and potential of faith actors to strategically work together. Members from Side by Side Uganda also joined the conference and were able to share the powerful and effective work that they are achieving in this area.

We look forward to continued collaborations with Side by Side members Ekklesia and CBE International
