EAST AFRICAN YOUTH IN SOLIDARITY WITH INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS IN TRANS-NZOIA DISTRICT KENYA

EAST AFRICAN YOUTH IN SOLIDARITY WITH INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS IN TRANS-NZOIA DISTRICT KENYA

Many parts of Kenya particularly North Rift region were engulfed in unrelenting political violence arising from the disputed results of the December 2007 General elections. Ensuing protests led to loss of lives, property worth millions of shillings and displacement of over 20,000 people in Trans-nzoia East district specifically Geta Farm. These were hosted at the Noigam Kachibora IDP camp, where TYSA has been working for the last four months offering psycho-social support, sports & recreation, safe space for children, education scholarships for girls, child labour advocacy, peace building and youth empowerment.

This project will provide an opportunity for the East African youths to share knowledge and experiences and contribute towards dialogue, peace building, reconciliation and affirm solidarity with the internally displaced persons.

We look forward to your generous contribution to make this project a success.
