The post-election violence in January 2008 that scorched Mathare Valley, destroyed homes and businesses and took many lives opened the eyes of many. The unthinkable had happened and the need to prevent the emergence of future conflicts is critically urgent. Many youth in Mathare Valley were involved in the violence as perpetrators, as victims, or as both. Youth involved with Maji Mazuri did not engage in violence and instead initiated activities to promote peace and community cohesion during and right after the conflict erupted.
The farm project was initiated in an effort to establish an income generating strategy that could aid in the realization of Maji Mazuri as a self-sustaining charitable organization. The farm seeks to reach out to local community with agricultural skill training and will expand to include a resource center and commercial farming. A clinic has also been established to cater for the medical needs of the community. Currently the kiserian project runs its activities on wind, solar and biogas energy.
