The FECCIWA participated in a "Reflection day on local communities engaged in advocating against illegal migration and human trafficking" on July 06th, 2019. It was held at the conference room of the AACC Regional Office in Lomé.
Organized by the West African Regional Office of the All Africa Conference of Churches (AACC), the day's objective was to enable participants to acquire the knowledge necessary to work and contribute as young christians to reduce the scale of this phenomenon in the church and in society.
According to the AACC Strategic Plan 2019-2023, migration and human trafficking has been identified as a theme to be addressed in order to raise awareness about the phenomenon and the roots of its causes. It was in this perspective that a consultative workshop was organized in Nigeria from 20th to 24th May 2019; consultation in which took part the General Secretary of the FECCIWA, the Very Rev. Dr. Jacques AGNIMEL Gnagne. Through this consultation, AACC intended to demonstrate the impact of migration and human trafficking on peace and sustainable human development in Africa. This being so, she is determined to help the member churches to have this theme in their agenda in order to reduce its size in the upcoming years. It is in response to this commitment that this workshop was organized.
The Regional Coordinator of the FECCIWA, Rev. Dr. Fidèle Fifamè HOUSSOU GANDONOU during this meeting shared experiences on its management of the problem of migration.
This meeting was attended by young people, pastors and some members of the Christian Council of Togo as well as delegates who took part in this consultation in Nigeria.
