JUNE 2011 – Robert Omundi, Director of the Youth Crime Watch Program in Tanzania, has been invited to represent the Ignitus Affiliate in a roundtable meeting “Towards Youth Inclusive Policies and Prevention of Violence.” This meeting will take place in Nairobi, Kenya, on June 27th-28th, 2011. It will bring together the Great Lakes region in Africa (Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya and Tanzania) to exchange good practices and information, as well as encourage the development of joint actions they can take towards youth development and youth violence prevention in their respective countries.
