Description:

the Tegla Loroupe Peace Foundation Was Formed to Use the Power of Sport to Bring Peace to Conflict-ridden Areas of East Africa, to Support Children Who Are Victims of Conflict, and to Enable Economic Development.

almost Two Hundred Thousand People Have Been Displaced by Conflict in This Region in the Past Seven Years, Seventy Per Cent of Them Women and Children Under Fourteen.  Thousands of Women Are Widowed, Thousands of Children Are Orphaned.  Two Million People Are Immediately Affected.

the Tegla Loroupe Peace Foundation Has Developed Four Coordinated Programmes to Implement Its Long-term Strategy to Reduce Conflict.

first, Peace Races. Bring Together Thousands of Warriors from All Tribes and Clans to Compete on Common Ground.

second, Peace Outreach. Use These Gatherings to Strengthen Indigenous Peace and Leadership Structures: Build District Peace Committees Working with Councils of Elders. Create an Early Warning System for Conflict, Utilizing New Technologies of Communication to Link Every Family in the Region.

third, Peace Academy. Build an Educational Structure for the Victims of Conflict, Beginning with the Children and Women, Based on Honoring the Fundamental Cultural Strengths of Pastoral Life.

fourth, Peace Development.  Develop the Fundamental Infrastructures of Peace: Health, Economic Development, and Security.

three Fundamental Principles Drive This Strategy: Local Ownership and Direction of the Entire Conflict Resolution Process; Complete Gender Equality in All Programs and Activities;  Equal Engagement with All Those Willing to Work for Peace.
