The Hekima Community  Peace training targeted Kibera mixed community leaders with the aim of reducing community violence in whatever form it takes by empowering the community leaders with conflict management skills and peacebuilding strategies that include economic activities that will reduce unemployment and therefore the possibilities of citizens being manipulated politically. The training had 30 participants from the 13 villages of Kibera.
