Promoting Peaceful Co-Existence in Nairobi’s Informal Settlements during the Covid-19 Pandemic Through Peace Packages

In June 2020, CEEC with support from GIZ-CPS distributed peace packages within five informal settlements of Nairobi. The peace packages were part of the project ‘Youth Embracing Diversity within Five Informal Settlements of Nairobi,’ which aimed at promoting peaceful co-existence during the Covid 19 crisis as well as cushioning the most vulnerable families within the informal settlements against the effects of the pandemic. 500 families from Kibra, Korogocho, Kawangware, Dandora and Mathare received the peace packages comprising of posters and stickers with peace messages as well as food packages and masks. More peace messages were relayed through a jingle that was played in the three community radios in the project areas Mtaani Radio, Pamoja FM and Koch FM.
