CAPA Consultation – 19-21 September 2005

[EAB Press - Burundi] Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi attended the Archbishops’ Consultation on the Church’s Response to Making Poverty History in Africa that was organised by the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa (CAPA) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Lord Griffiths of Fforestfach and a team of professional people assisted the participants to work through the issues relating to the reduction, alleviation, and eradication of poverty, particularly as it relates to the areas of health, education, and micro-finance.

A working group was constituted comprising the Archbishops of Tanzania, Kenya and Burundi to develop strategies for action in those areas.

In a statement from the consultation the Archbishops say, “As Church leaders we recognise that we have a prophetic ministry to our people and nations and we pledge ourselves to continue to offer moral leadership in the fight against poverty, disease, and social injustice in our societies.”
