For decades Kenya has been known as an island of peace. Indeed, she has hosted thousands of refugees and those seeking political asylum. At the advent of the multi-party system in 1991, the country started experiencing political turmoil of an ethnic angle. The conflicts were however localized within few geographical areas.
The country managed to push forward within a very delicate balance of ruined inter-ethnic relationships. In 2007 after the contested presidential elections, this state escalated to many parts of the nation and the country could no longer hold together. This resulted in a full-blown and widespread conflict where death, displacement, and destruction of property occurred leaving many hearts wounded.
In 2008, Way of Peace (WAPE) was formed in efforts to bring healing to the wounded hearts. This was in partnership with Mercy Ministries International, a Rwandan-based organization. Rwanda had walked the journey before Kenya after the 1994 Genocide. An approach called Healing Hearts Transforming Nations (HHTN) was very effective in the Rwandan journey of Healing and Reconciliation. This came in handy for WAPE to use in Kenya.
Since then, many have received healing, broken relationships have been restored, churches and individuals have been empowered to be agents of hope and reconciliation in their communities. The Kenyan and Rwandan stories are not unique in the region, since the rest of the countries in the region also experience either political, ethnic, religious, or social conflicts. The approach has been used not only in countries in Africa, but also in Europe, America and Asia.
WAPE in partnership with Rabagirana Ministries, Lerucher Ministries, and Healing Nations welcomes you to this unique experience. This training will help you receive inner healing and be equipped to be an agent of healing in the ailing institutions of family, workplace, church, communities, and nations marred by an unending cycle of conflicts. You will also have an opportunity to share your experiences and also hear the experiences and struggles of others in the healing journey. Certificate of completion will be rewarded to those who successfully complete the course.
