2008 Presidential Elections

"Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already deviod of stars...Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

-Martin Luther King Jr.

Recent post-election violence took a devastating toll on the people of Kenya.  More then 3,000 are dead and over 300,000 have been displaced from their homes.  Food and transportation costs have skyrocketed, many health care clinics and schools shut down, and other unimaginable destruction. 

This conference supports a critical time of rebuilding and peace-spreading efforts being made by the Kenyan people.  This week will do more then give these youth public health education and sports teamwork skills; it will hopefully give them the inspiration and motivation to empower themselves and their own communities to make a difference.
