Applications are now open for the Women PeaceMakers program, which is  an eight-week residency at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice (IPJ), located on the University of San Diego campus in San Diego, California.

Four peacemakers selected to participate in this residency. The program pairs each peacemaker with a Peace Writer and a documentary film team to document her story and best practices. Selected candidates give presentations on their work both at the IPJ and in the San Diego community and have opportunities to exchange ideas and approaches to peacemaking and justice, increasing their capacity to participate in conflict resolution and peacebuilding efforts and in post-conflict decision-making.

    i have been involved in peace making activities in 8 districts in Kenya which include Tranzoia east and west, Wareng, eldoret east and west, lugari, Mt. elgon, which were greatly affect by the famous Kenya post poll of the 2007/2008.Physically i walked with all the 42 ethinic groups living in the area. The groups comprised of those who were not displaced and the name used in the area is HOST COMMUNITIES and the displaced group is referred to as IDPS even todate. i have alot of experience which i gained during the june2008-may2010. literally i visited, interacted and reconciled the groups in the said districts. i am still following the displaced families who moved to central province of Kenya and south rift valley despite the challenge of funding to carry on as an individual. i am very happy to learn that someone is willing to help me document my experience, success stories, ways of mitigation , best practices etc. my head and mind is focused to coming up with a very good documentary of the same given the chance. How then apply to attend the peace makers conference.
