Peace Games in Nairobi, Kenya

Peace Day Celebrations were hosted at Mathare Youth Polytechnic in September 2017.  In attendance were eight schools with their respective teachers with the theme: Together for peace, respect, safety, and dignity for all. Participants were engaged in prayers for peace based on goal 16. Peace Clubs from these schools presented peace-themed songs, poems, and dances. Total number of teams was 14 including teams for boys and girls. Children  and youth were also given opportunity to sign a pledge for a culture of peace and nonviolence after which “football for peace” was played as a joint friendly match.

Our organization aims to build the capacity of the society to sustainably ensure the well-being of all members, namely equitable access to available resources, respect of dignity in diversity, personal and collective empowerment, and responsible participation.
