Challenge

Music for culture of Peace is to address the problem of limited political accountability and transparency in Kenya. Corruption is a major issue in Kenya with many politicians using their position for personal gain rather than for the common good. The average citizen suffers from this corruption, but lacks the knowledge to hold politicians accountable. Additionally, music for peace wants to ensure that there is no post-election violence in the upcoming 2013 presidential elections. Kenya witness

Solution

Music for culture of peace will solve this problem by educating Kenyan citizens about the voting system, the new constitution, and ways to hold their politicians accountable. The political forums will bring citizens together to discuss issues they want to see addressed and how they can advocate for change. This project will strengthen the system of democracy in Kenya and bring about peaceful elections in 2013.

Long-Term Impact

Music for culture of peace hopes to create a long term culture of political accountability. We hope to educate 10,000 Kenyans on the voting system and how to hold politicians accountable.
