Egyptian Centre Honours Neem Foundation For Post-conflict Reconstruction, Development

July 11, (THEWILL) – The Cairo International Center for Conflict Resolution, Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding (CCCPA) has honoured Neem Foundation with the prestigious inaugural Aswan Forum Award for Post-Conflict Reconstruction and Development

The centre said Neem Foundation has been a leader in fostering peace and development in conflict-affected regions through a range of impactful initiatives.

The Director of CCCPA, who is also an Executive Director of the Aswan Forum, Ahmed Abdel Latif, stated this during an award ceremony held at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation in Egypt.

The event, organised to mark its fourth edition with the theme: “Africa in a Changing World: Re-Envisioning Global Governance for Peace and Development”, convened heads of state, government leaders, regional and international organisations, financial institutions, private sector, civil society organisations, scholars, and experts.

He maintained that by addressing Africa’s most pressing challenges and opportunities, the forum fostered action-oriented discussions and offered home-grown solutions for peace, security, and development.

He added that the Aswan Forum Award for Post-Conflict Reconstruction and Development recognises African individuals, organisations, initiatives, or projects that have made substantial contributions to peace, security, and development, bridging the gap between policy and practice by honouring those who have achieved a significant impact on the ground.

In her remarks, the Executive Director of Neem Foundation, Dr. Fatima Akilu, expressed her heartfelt gratitude for the recognition, noting that the recognition would spur her organisation to do more in fostering peace and development in Africa.

“For us, as African peacebuilders, having others on our continent aware of our work, noticing what we are doing, wanting to reward us, and receiving the award on African soil—I can’t even tell you how much that means,” said Dr. Akilu.

She noted that over the years, the organisation has delivered crucial interventions across Nigeria and other countries affected by conflict, positively impacting over 185,000 individuals with vital support and resources.

The award highlights the significant work of the Neem Foundation and other organisations dedicated to post-conflict reconstruction and development in Africa. As the challenges facing the continent continue to evolve, recognition of effective and impactful initiatives remains crucial in inspiring continued progress.
