Children’s Peace Initiative Kenya

Jane is a Rotary Peace Scholar and the founder of this organization.  Children’s Peace Initiative – Kenya or (CPI-Kenya), is a local community organization based in Kenya, to establish peace between ethnic tribes in Northern Kenya. The IMTD-Children’s Peace Initiative Project supports reconciliation processes by supporting the potential for tribal children to communicate and promote peace in their communities. In response to perennial conflict, notably in Marsabit, Baringo, and Samburu counties, CPI-Kenya designs programs that give children the structure to develop the foundation for sustainable peace among the local inter-tribal communities. Through efforts like family twinning, homestays, and peace clubs, CPI-Kenya works to rehabilitate relationships between children, families, and social institutions affected by conflict resulting from adversity between tribal neighbors.
