The #Jesuit HAKIMANI Centre in Nairobi, Kenya is thinking positive!

With one in six young Kenyans unemployed, a positive attitude change is needed and work alternatives found and developed into businesses. In fact, according to the Kenya Standard “The future of Kenya’s competitiveness in the global economy remains bleak as the country struggles to contain the heaviest youth unemployment burden in East Africa.”

The work of the #Jesuit #Refugee Service in Maban, South Sudan covers psychosocial care, teacher training and an early childhood development school for the local community. READ http://bit.ly/WRDBurke2017
Shane Burke explains that while all residents are ‘vulnerable persons’, within the camps are those who are particularly so: elderly people; those living with disabilities; children with cerebral palsy. Training is given to their mothers in physiotherapy and nutrition. It has had a huge impact on their confidence.

“How do you become an integrated adult when you’ve been killing people?”
The question drives the #Jesuit #Refugee Service to search for sustainable answers. On June 12th, World Day Against Child Labour, it is more pertinent than ever. In 2017 the focus is on the impact of conflicts and disasters on children and youth and the work they can be forced into doing as a result.#NOchildlabour

A big change at the Irish #Jesuit Missions in Dublin as our Programmes Manager Emer Kerrigan hands over to Francis Flood for the next year. The Programme Manager works with our development partners overseas in #education, health, pastoral and emergency works. Francis has recently arrived after four years in #SouthSudan to take up the reins of responsibility. He looks forward to working at IJM and making a contribution towards #peace and sustainable development. We wish you both the very best and keep you in our prayers. #SDG4 #SDG3
