After months in the planning, it is good to report that the Stop Child Witch Accusations Coalition Forum in London earlier this month was a success, by Godâ€™s grace.
Delegates from ten different organisations joined members of the SCWA steering group for the event, which explored the delegates’ experiences of child witch accusations and what steps could be taken to address these accusations.
Those who attended said they understood the issue better as a result of theÂ Forum,Â and felt better equipped to take positive action. They plan to:
‘Engage all programmes especially in Africa to isolate and respond to the issue.’
‘Look for creative ways to surface the issue in a non-threatening, non-judgemental way.’
‘Explore how my organisation can join the forum / networks and conversation in DRC.’
We’re looking forward to building relationships with everyone who joined us for the day and continuing the conversation. Letâ€™s keep the momentum going, build from here and give thanks to God for a really good day!
