No single person can 'save the world'. However, there is much that people can do when they work together to make themselves, their families, their communities and their countries better, and to help others do the same, around the world.

 

As you are in Kenya, another possible route/collaboration to implement your vision is through/with the Department of Education. You are probably aware of this, but I add a link, just in case:

 

Kenya's Ministry of Education seeks to introduce compulsory peace education to avoid repeating the violence that has plagued the region's past; a proposal that the ministry argues, has been informed by last year's post-election violence:

Best of luck Andrew!

Hi Andrew,

I read your appeal for assistance regarding current conditions in Kenya, and regarding your work to create a CIPE. 

I think you have a good idea for constructive and positive peacebuilding, with your CIPE initiative: “... (to create) peace education clubs in schools, churches and community organizations" etc.  I also did read that you are a certified peace educator with Teachers Without Borders.

I am the founder and outreach coordinator for The Interfaith Peacebuilding and Community Revitalization (IPCR) Initiative, at www.ipcri.net  I am currently sharing information about the IPCR Initiative, and particularly about The IPCR Journal/Newsletter Winter 2010-2011 issue (58 pages) (accessible for free at www.ipcri.net ).  This particular issue is like a CIPE Peace Education Organizer’s Manual; it just represents a different, and possibly more wide-ranging, approach to peacebuilding. 

I am familiar with Teachers Without Borders work, and especially with the concept of “Community Teaching and Learning Centers”.  I believe you might find some inspiration for workshops in The IPCR Journal/Newsletter Winter issue--workshops which could be offered in "Community Teaching and Learning Centers"--and also some ideas for helping people appreciate how many other different ways “Community Teaching and Learning Centers” can be helpful.

There is also a special article in that Winter issue titled “A Call to Women’s Organizations Associated with Peacebuilding and Philanthropy”.  This article may inspire some women there, and help them (and you) in the further search for resources and assistance.  There are many more articles in that issue which might be helpful to you.  Please feel welcome to ask if you think of other ways I might be helpful to your efforts.

With Kind Regards and Best Wishes,

Stefan Pasti

Dear Andrew,

 

I know somebody who does training on self-development and leadership in Kenya, in collaboration with the organisation 'Women for Justice in Africa'. Your project on peace education could benefit from a collaboration with them.

 

Have a look at the website and please free to contact David if you see an opportunity for collaboration.

With best wishes,

Liviu
