On November 4th, 2021 the Horn of Africa alumni event regarding Security and Rule of Law on took place.

The Alumni Challenge 2021 - Horn of Africa was organised by Nuffic and the Netherlands Alumni Associations (NAA) of Kenya and Uganda. NL alumni from Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda were asked to send in interventions within the theme Security and Rule of Law. What would the alumni do if they had € 3000 to spend on something that would aid their community?

The Alumni Challenge is a way to showcase the strength and impact of alumni in the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda). Our alumni action heroes have designed and developed interventions that they think will be successful in addressing issues pertaining to Security and Rule of Law.
