We believe in good governance. It’s the heart of a flourishing community. Good governance leads to education, health care and jobs for local people.
Poor governance - dictatorship, corruption, abuse of human rights - is one of the drivers of poverty and injustice.
Tackling corruption is of fundamental importance in the battle against poverty because of its impact on communities in developing countries. Churches around the world are holding governments to account, calling on them to act justly in the interests of the population.
In Kenya, the church has decided to rally around the theme ‘Together for Christ’ over the next decade. The Anglican Church has called on politicians to work towards ‘an equitable distribution of resources and the strengthening of institutions that will ensure good governance’.
Across the world, the Church promotes education and peace in communities, calling on politicians to prioritise these above party politics.
