Nakuru is one of Kenya’s largest cities located in the Rift Valley. As in most Rift communities, agriculture is the area’s main source of income. After the elections of 2007, violence erupted in the region, taking the form of gangs equipped with machetes, clubs, and bows and arrows. Following the initial clashes over the elections, violence continued, rooted in revenge attacks and deeper ethnic conflict reaching back generations. In the end, dozens of civilians lost their lives or were injured and many more were displaced from their homes.
In Nakuru, SNA-K works with several excellent initiatives, including:
Tumore Youth Group
Young Women Entrepreneurs Kenya
Kenya Muslims Youth Alliance
Provincial Peace Forum
Center for Transformational Leadership
Smart Vote Initiatives
