On 22nd February 2008 about 30 youths gathered at the Northern Eastern Province Girls Secondary School Hall for a one day workshop on peace building. The participants came from five surrounding schools in Garissa namely; Garissa High School, Umu-Salama Girls Secondary School, Young Muslim Secondary School, North Eastern Province Girls School and County High School. The Global Network of Religions for Children (GNRC) workshop was in partial fulfillment of the Young Peace Ambassador Program (TYPAP) which aims at promoting dialogue on peace among children and young people by making them peace ambassadors as they emulate role models at a young age. Thus it is hoped that this dialogue will result into enhanced capacity by children and youth to articulate their aspirations and form solidarities for peace.
