Maat for Peace and the African Dream sign a cooperation protocol for 2020
Okeil: Partnerships are the base of SDGs achievements
Sally: The African continent needs joint efforts to achieve concrete development
By the ending of 2019, Maat for Peace, Development and Human Rights and the African Dream 2063 signed a cooperation protocol ,in the headquarter of Maat, to highlight the foundations’ partnership regarding the African work. The protocol aims to combine efforts to maximize the benefits of the African people, as the two institutions decided to focus their work on the least developed countries of the African continent, in order to support them to achieve the United Nations 2030 Agenda and the African Union 2063 Agenda. The issues of the spread of terrorism and extremism are among the top issues to be addressed within the framework of the joint cooperation, through the enrichment of the values of peaceful coexistence and acceptance of the other.
Ayman Okeil, President of Maat for Peace, Development and Human Rights, stated that partnerships are the core of development in all continents, especially the African continent, because it faces a large number of challenges that represent an obstacle to achieve the goals of sustainable development. Okeil pointed out that all national and regional stakeholders should join hands to support the African countries in greatest need.
Moreover, Sally Atef, head of the African Dream 2063 Foundation, said that the African continent needs great support to be able to catch up with the developed countries. Thus, the concerted efforts will certainly accelerate the pace of development that many African countries have witnessed recently.
