Fulfilling the promise to end internal displacement


The violence that erupted after Kenya’s 2007-2008 disputed general elections resulted in the death of over 1,300 and the displacement of over 600,000 people. Violence and displacement typically affects women, children and other vulnerable persons disproportionately.

This documentary highlights some of the challenges faced by internally displaced women and children during and after the post-election violence as they narrate their healing processes.

The Refugee Consortium of Kenya (RCK) is a legal and policy development organisation that has provided legal and psychosocial assistance to the victims of the violence and undertaken advocacy for the enactment of a legal framework on internal displacement in Kenya.

Awakening Hope - Best Practices in Peace Building


The disputed general election in 2007 brought about the displacement of populations. In response, various actors in post-conflict reconstruction initiated programmes aimed at addressing the root causes of displacement and promoting cohesion between communities.

In this documentary, Refugee Consortium of Kenya (RCK) considers the different approaches to peacebuilding employed by various actors with a view to identifying some best practices towards the realisation of true reconciliation and healing. The documentary also highlights the challenges that displaced persons continue to face in Kenya.

Kenya has made great strides at the national level that portray its resolve to move on from and prevent displacement occasioned by violence. The documentary depicts stories from individuals and communities in the field and their role in preventing violence and displacement to foster long-lasting peace.
