Jesuit Hakimani Centre is a research, formation, and social action institute for Eastern Africa, founded by the Jesuits in 2001 and situated in Nairobi, Kenya.

History[edit | edit source]

Hakimani is a work of the Eastern Africa Province of Jesuits which includes Kenya, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. Its aim is to empower men and women to participate in their development toward a more just society, by promoting a fair distribution of resources and multiculturalism. It is involved in research, training, consultancy, advocacy, social action, and the print and broadcast media.[1] The name "Hakimani" combines the Kiswahili words “haki” (justice) and “imani” (peace with faith). Jesuit planning for the centre began in 1988 but it was not until October 2001 that the centre opened at Shalom House on Ngong Road, Nairobi. In 2011 it moved to Riara Road, in the Hekima College complex, before settling at its current home at Loyola House.[2][3][2][4][5][6][7]

During 2013 the Media, Research, and Publication Programme trained 31 religious women, 20 parish priests, and 15 religious men in the potential of media for evangelization. It also handled media and online coverage and publication of the Centre's programmes.[8]
