Millennium Fellowship Project: BridgeAfrica
Bridge Africa intends to help build knowledge and promote civic education and conversation on governance issues. Africa, with kenya being the focus, has always had issues in changing of government and tensions build that could potentially lead to violence. Our project aims to urge people to engage in constructive political dialogue and have/ change different political views. This inturn gives out diversity of thought in people so that elections now become about supporting the government and not division seeing as Kenya has more than 40 ethnic tribes. This will also help promote peace which is paramount in any country. Through civic education, people will also learn to exercise their democratic rights more and to promote good governance and human rights.
