PEACE RECONCILIATION (RE-CONSTRUCTION)
We at KVCDP are deeply concerned by what was brought about by the post election violence that rocked the country after Dec 2007 General elections.
Now that peace has been restored in the counry after political agreement by the two political parties, KVCDP is committed to the peace process that will bring the will and understanding among our Kenyan communities. We are calling on all the youths serving organisations world wide to join us in addressing the crisis through unique initiatives known as international work camps for peace reconciliation and reconstruction to help eliminate the disconect between people and their culture. The youth volunteers will hold peace rallies, community services among other activities. Volunteers can bring small or big donations to the affected members of our communities during work camps and we help them share a message of peace.
We urge you to make a commitment and be the cause of this change.
