Rev. Fred Nyabera of Kenya has been named the director of Arigatou International’s new multi-stakeholder initiative to reduce poverty’s devastating effects on the world’s children. The initiative, first announced at the fourth global forum of the GNRC in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in June 2012, was tentatively titled Mobilizing Faith-based Resources to End Child Poverty. Rev. Nyabera will apply his expertise as a social scientist, trained theologian and pastor, as well as his experience with NGO partnerships and development work, to help shape the new initiative.
