|BUILDING BRIDGES PEACE MOVEMENT|
Building Bridges is a campaign to encourage and map peace initiatives in Kenya.
Building Bridges initially started as a competition to encourage and reward Kenyans to reach out to others to overcome conﬂict. Given that the competition was a huge success and we could count more than 615 udated peace initiatives Building Bridges decided to stay alive and support all Kenyans who wish to join the movement, make it grow even bigger and contribute to a peaceful society.
Building Bridges stays the platform for everyone who wants to contribute to peace in Kenya!
It is aimed at everyone who wants to ﬁnd solutions to existing problems and deal with the sources of conflict. If that is you or your organisation then you can upload your peace initiative here on this website. By doing that you become part of an inspring movement of peace makers throughout Kenya. You can find other people and organisations with same interests to build a network, join forces, inspire each other - start the dialogue and spread peace!
Building Bridges wants to stimulate those initiatives which contribute to preventing or overcoming conflict within or between communities e.g. villages, neighborhoods, faith groups, families, businesses. Those conflicts could be related to land issues, ethnicity, and corruption amongst others issues. Building Bridges aims to motivate individuals to take action and register their initiative, activities or organization. The Building Bridges platform aims to foster collaboration and interactivity on peace initiatives across Kenya, to support those doing great work and to create a sustainable culture of peace throughout the country.
