Summary

This project will build the HODI Peace Center in Marsabit County in Northern Kenya, providing over 1000 children armed with guns and hatred for other tribes as a neutral safe space where Football replaces the gun, battle field is replaced by Peace Field, while the Peace Ambassadors replace fierce warriors.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are currently more than 3000 families diplaced by the ongoing clashes with the recent deaths increasing. The youths are used and misused to keep the clashes from never coming to the envisaged end. The project will benefit over 1000 children armed with guns and hatred for other tribes as a neutral safe space where Football replaces the gun, battle field is replaced by Peace Field, while the Peace Ambassadors replace fierce warriors. Also a safe space for young girls rescued from marriages.
