Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Promoting Peace

To ensure life in the better life within the community, there has to be peace and conflict resolution whenever some people or parties happen to disagree over some issue or several issues. During the post election violence in Kenya in 2008,most people get angry with their opponents and the effects were diverse and lead to loss of lives, homes and several valuables. After the war violence, peace had to be realized to ensure that people live in good terms with their neighbors. In Nairobi there were several programmes specifically organized in forms on campaigns,conferences and other informal forums, to help create peace among the residents.The dreams were realized and some of the groups involved included the government of Kenya through the ministry of justice, The united nations, The red cross movement and others.This was an achievement because the dreams was realized and today people live in peace.
