Peace campaigns

Unsung Peace Heroes, 2008

Putting the spotlight on peace makers

This online and sms competition called on the Kenyan public to vote for as yet unknown local peace heroes. Those who had helped others during the post-election violence or promoted peace in whatever small way.
The 10 winning heroes received prize money and their photo and story in the national newspaper. It really gave a positive vibe after all the horror people experienced and put the spotlight on those who put themselves at risk to help their fellow man or woman.
