Embracing Culture and Sports as both enablers and drivers of a people-centered integration agenda through the promotion and enhancement of diverse sports activities and the promotion and preservation of our culture is of paramount importance.
EAC, and Culture and Sports
The Republic of Burundi, the Republic of Kenya, the Republic of Rwanda, the United Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Uganda have enjoyed and continued to enjoy close educational, scientific, social, economic and cultural ties for their mutual benefit.
The EAC Partner States have shared historical, cultural and sports experience that need to be re-affirmed and reclaimed for our cultural and sporting identity.
The EAC Partner States recognise the role that Culture and Sports play in the existence and survival of our communities, particularly for social cohesion, solidarity, stability, identity, promoting unity and economic development and as tools for effective sustainable development, maintenance of peace, security and healthy societies.
