• The physical work will comprise of assisting in repairing classrooms and digging pit latrines for the community school in the post conflict situation. • Youth leaders exposed to skills in the areas of peace building, and reconciliation. • Exchange ideas on on-going and previous peace processes and the strategic role the youth leaders can play. • Youth leaders and the host communities will exchange ideas about peace building and reconciliation strategies leading to future collaborations. • Youth leaders will have combined physical work in a conflict setting with discussions of peace and conflict issues with communities affected by post-election violence. • It is anticipated that the outcome of the identified activities will enhance the process of re-building trust, whose long-term objective is reconciliation. Also, strengthen the youth leaders to respond in an appropriate way in dealing with issues of conflict within their communities. This will also compliment the work of national healing and reconstruction

Building the capacity of youth leaders in approaches to peace building and reconciliation • The signing of the peace agreements in Africa is indeed commendable and raises new hopes for peace and development. However, peace agreements do not automatically translate into a resolution of the grievances or issues which caused the conflict in the first place. From a peace builder’s perspective, these accords offer new opportunities to reorder society, its structures and institutions, processes and relationships, in a manner that diminishes the possibility of a recurrence of violence and improves the potential for social justice. Reconciliation among former protagonists at all levels is crucial for long-term peace and development. • The conflict is between the Kuria and Maasai communities of Kenya who are neighbours and share a common border near Kenya/Tanzania border and it is ignited by land issues scramble for scarce resources and politics. The Maasai and pastoralists while the Kuria community is engaged in small scale farming. • The nature of conflict has led to incessant fights, cattle theft, killings and general animosity among the neighbouring communities.
