What’s happening?

A growing wave of ethnic violence in Kenya’s North Rift Valley, often centred around cattle-rustling, has left over 600 people dead and driven more than 435,000 from their homes since the start of 2014, according to UN figures.

Without urgent steps to bring divided communities together and build peace, the violence could be expected to worsen – driving more people to flee their land.
The good news; there’s a real appetite for an end to the killing. That has been demonstrated by the Champions Walk for Peace (, initiated by some of the World’s finest athletes in association with the Aegis Trust. People from all sides joined in dialogue and in the walk as it wound its way through the Rift Valley in July and August 2015.
For the sake of the next generation, this hope needs to be built upon fast. Their future hangs in the balance. Together, we could make all the difference.
