About Us

We work with children today, to build a peaceful tomorrow

Children Peace Initiative (CPI) Kenya envisions a peaceful and diverse society co-existing in harmony for social and economic development. We build bridges among children and families of neighboring pastoralist communities in Kenya by creating opportunities and capacities for them to engage in peace processes. We currently work in Nairobi, Samburu, Baringo, Marsabit, and Isiolo.

CPI builds cooperation between pastoralists, which reduces the need to resort to violence and also increases resiliency to drought and climate change. The model has been tested out over ten years of working with the Pokot and Samburu tribes and is now extending to a broader area.
