Peace Games in Nairobi, Kenya

Posted by Erin Bechtol
10.23.17

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.
