Upholding the Principles of Conflict Transformation

PeaceNet embraces the conflict transformation approach, which it transfers to grassroots partners through its institutionalized training on non-violent conflict transformation, anchored in its Training and Capacity Building Program.

PeaceNet – through the help of and partnership with the German/GIZ Civil Peace Service – was able to come-up with a curriculum for nonviolent conflict transformation and formal structures and processes/ guidelines to ensure quality control.

Where and with whom?

PeaceNet works with relevant stakeholders including Faith Based Organizations, Community based organizations, relevant government institutions, INGOs, Donor organizations spread all over Kenya.

PeaceNet works primarily with grassroots partners spread in all the 47 counties in Kenya, hence high recognition and concerted efforts.

Main Activities in the Field of Conflict Transformation

PeaceNet’s main activities include:

  • Nonviolent conflict transformation trainings targeting grassroots peace actors – this enables individuals to have a wide lens on how to achieve sustainable peace within their communities by becoming change agents to influence change within their immediate environments.
  • Building conflict transformation networks within the grassroots levels – towards having a wider pool of peace actors equipped with knowledge and skills on initiating community change processes nationally.
  • Building a pool of trainers and equipping them with relevant methodology for conflict transformation trainings through mentorship process – this is because there are very few trainers with the required facilitation methodologies for trainings.
  • Initiating community based peace projects with community members towards transforming conflicts and preventing the cyclic of violence – this may take the form intra and community dialogue processes.
