24 October 2022: MESSAGE BY THE NGO COUNCIL OF KENYA: As the world marks United Nations Day, let us remember why the United Nations was created and the spirit of its founders. In 1945 and the ensuing years, there was optimism, hope and determination to achieve peace, security and human rights for all and General welafre of Human beings in our world Since its formation in 1945, the United Nations has stood as a universal symbol of hope and humanity. The UN Charter encompasses our vision for sustainable development, respect for human rights, and maintenance of peace and security. It all starts with education. Education is the very foundation. Without education – especially for those suffering in wars, climate disasters and as forcibly displaced – how can we ever achieve the vision of the United Nations? It is logically and humanely impossible. Today, 77 years after the proclamation of the UN Charter, the world is suffering from unprecedented insecurity, new, ongoing and devastating armed conflicts and its largest ever displacement movements. We at the National Council of NGOs-Kenya we wish the United Nations all the best as it continues to serve humanity. we are grateful for the partnership between our NGOs and the united nations agencies in our nations and across the region.

Kind regards,

Stephen K. Cheboi- Chairman NGO Council of Kenya
