New Hope for Africa

Dr Andre KaramagaSocial Policy Connections, in association with Act for Peace, welcomed Revd. Dr. Andre Karamaga as guest speaker in the Study Centre of Yarra Theological Union on 19 April 2010.

Dr Karamaga is a Rwandan Presbyterian minister. He is currently General Secretary of the All Africa Conference of Churches, which represents 173 churches and Christian organisations from 40 African countries, with 140 million adherents.

This was Dr Karamaga’s first visit to Australia, where he presented talks on the issues facing Africa and the response of the All Africa Conference of Churches. His talks included the issues of climate change and aid effectiveness, as well as the church’s role in peacekeeping on a continent where many countries are still in the grip of civil war. In this area Dr Karamaga drew from his own personal experiences as a Rwandan leader who lost family during the genocide. His lecture delivered to Social Policy Connections was entitled “New Hope for Africa: the churches’ role in peacemaking and development”.
