The Edge of Kenyan Civilization

Category : Bright New Ideas Updates

The sky is so sunny and beautiful in this area – Njoro, Kenya just outside of Nakuru. Children were playing in the fields on this wonderful Saturday afternoon – it was so peaceful – no one could have imagined that this area had so many problems just a couple years ago when the 2008 post-election violence broke out. Felix told Patrick that this was a particularly dangerous area where he would not have dared to travel – for fear of having his name checked on his ID card – and being hacked to pieces for being from an enemy tribe. The area is peaceful for now but no one knows what will happen during the next election in 2012. We speculate that with better access to lighting and education, violence and tribe conflict can diminish over time. We look to build a more peaceful and understanding world.
