The Kakuma Camp Peace Building Project (KCPBP) involves peacebuilding workshops that promote peace, encourage peacebuilding, and train participants to actively seek reconciliation. Certified Sudanese church leaders who have been trained to lead peacebuilding and reconciliation programs will facilitate these workshops.
The Kakuma Refugee Camp in located in northwest Kenya bordering South Sudan. The camp is home to almost 200,000 refugees from South Sudan, as well as Burundi, Somalia, Ethiopia, and Congo. Living in an overcrowded refugee camp with little resources can lead people to fighting and conflict, and over the past several years, clashes have flared among the South Sudanese Refugees from different ethnic groups. This fighting has often led to deaths of refugees inside the camp. Through our church partner FEBAC, The Kakuma Peace Building project trains participants to be active peacebuilders in their community and encourages them to promote peaceful coexistence and reconciliation among the South Sudanese refugees from different ethnic groups. The workshop also deals with healing trauma from past events.
