In Kenya, Finn Church Aid is building peace and improving livelihood opportunities.
Northern Kenya, in particular, suffers from conflicts related to natural resources, such as water and land ownership. FCA aims to help local communities and governments to resolve and prevent conflicts in order to thwart violence in the five counties of northern Kenya.
We also work to support the local governments to take more responsibility for development in their own regions by virtue of the constitution that was reformed in 2013. In this way, local residents can have more influence on decisions regarding their own lives.
The work is conducted in cooperation with local authorities as well as local and UN organisations.
