Immigration and Intolerance: A conversation with New Garden's Upper School

Hawo at NGFS

Students shared opinions on immigration after small group discussions.

High school is often a time of judgment and isolation. At New Garden Friends School, where the students are encouraged to accept their differences and create a loving community, discrimination can sometimes feel like a distant notion.

Bridging the divide across borders: Peace Dialogue in Elwak

Scarcity of grazing land has led to conflicts among pastoralist communities living along both sides of the Kenya and Somalia border. In Elwak, Somalia livestock is the main source of livelihood for the residents and the same is true for neighboring communities living on the other side of the border in Kenya.  Unfortunately with limited space, violent conflict led to preventable deaths.
