Welcome to the latest edition of the Pamoja newsletter. We hope you are safe during these uncertain times! After almost two years in the making, we are particularly proud and excited to report that both Niger and Kenya have become core country partners in the Twende Mbele programme. This is to say that the two countries now sit in the management committee where programmatic decisions are made. We salute all the health workers, doctors, nurses and scientists who are working around the clock to save lives and bring an end to this virus. We also salute our partner country members who form part of the various COVID-19 task teams put together to combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has disrupted the way of life for many around the world, and Africa is not exception. Remote learning, teaching and working have become the new norm as countries look to stop the spread of the virus. Click here to access the full newsletter..
