PENHA attends a Japanese international workshop on humanitarian aid to pastoralists.
Dr. Tafesse Mesfin, one of PENHA's long standing trustees from Ethiopia attended this important workshop on the provision of humanitarian aid to pastoralists in East Africa. This meeting was held in Schizuoka and was organized by the Japanese Centre for Global Studies.
The focus was the need for aid to be fully relevant to the needs and the culture of pastoralists - and to move from "Western universalism" to "universal universalism". A brief summary of the workshop can be seen here.
