Giving Peace A Sporting Chance in Northern Kenya

NRT has partnered with the County Government of Isiolo and the Danish International Development Assistance (DANIDA) to host a half marathon and peace dialogue session on the 25-26 April at the Kenya Wildlife Complex Offices in Isiolo County.

This is the first in a series of ‘sport-for-peace’ events aimed at enhancing ongoing reconciliation efforts between different ethnic groups in the region, which are being spearheaded by community conservancies. Relations between communities have been severely strained by prolonged drought and last year’s general elections.

The half marathon and dialogue session will provide an opportunity for communities to collaborate with each other, air grievances in a proactive manner, and build sustainable peace strategies with their respective conservancies.
