The United Evangelical Mission (UEM) has announced the winners of the International Partnership Award 2022. The first prize goes to the partnership project "Mime Arts for Life, Otjiwarongo".

The second prize goes to the trilateral partnership between the Christian Church of North Central Java (GKJTU) in Indonesia, the Kigeme Diocese of the Anglican Church in Rwanda (EAR) and the Remscheid Lennep Church District of the Evangelical Church in the Rhineland.
