Rotary Foundation Minute

For decades, the small pastoral communities in northern Kenya have been caught in a cycle of violence.  Tribes have shed blood over distrust, scarce resources, and the theft of livestock.  Former Rotary Scholar Monica Kinyua and her sister Jane, founded the Children Peace Initiative Kenya to end the fighting by building friendships between children from different tribes.  The sisters used a Rotary global grant sponsored by Rotarians in San Diego, California and the Rotary Club of Nairobi to conduct one of several peace camps for children and teachers in Baragoi, Samburu County, a highly dangerous area.   The peace camps have helped reduce violence in the region.  Monica states, "Through the program, children are directly participating n intercommunity peace and coaching their parents and influencing the communities to live peacefully with each other."
Your contribution to Rotary makes this happen.  Thank you.
