The Kutoka Network is a voluntary gathering of Christian teams who minister to people living in the various informal settlements. The word KUTOKA originates from the biblical meaning The EXODUS (KUTOKA in Swahili). The network started in 2002, when priests, sisters and people living and working in parishes joined together to discuss and learn about the issues they faced in their daily work and challenges as well as positive things that were happening in the various people’s settlements (slums) . They look at the problems affecting the people in slums, with the eyes of Gospel.
AIM AND OBJECTIVE
The network aims to analyze the reality of the slums, to share experiences, to reflect on different approaches , to plan common initiatives and actions and to highlight positive aspects of living in the people’s settlements.
