The session was moderated by Mr. Augustine Mwaimu who is the Hub Development group’s focal person in Tanzania.

A brief analysis of evidence in Tanzania was presented by Prof. Ogenga upon which members reflected and shared insights on what should be the next step forward for the East Africa Hub.

The ultimate aim was to identify what evidence exists and what additional evidence is needed. Furthermore, the Listening Dialogue was to enable make decisions about how evidence should be used in the region to influence policies and good practice.

“Faith based organisations are engaging on a daily basis with local communities in development, the issue lies in the learnings that we can draw from these engagements and how best to document them for proper utilization and accessibility to local development actors.”

“We can seek to understand the extent to which development work is being influenced by evidence that is out there. We should also get to understand how best to involve other non-faith NGOs who can share their evidences that can enrich peace building programmes.”
