NCIC partnered with Kwale County Amani Clubs Coordinator to facilitate Amani Club activities and sensitize the students on the dangers of radicalization. The Forum, held on 15th to 16th March 2019, was in Matuga Sub-County, Kwale County. The sensitization forum reached over 200 participants that included students and Amani Clubs Patrons. Amani Clubs are majorly working to promote good relations, harmony and peaceful co-existence amongst students and their neighboring communities. The objective of the function was to sensitize the students on the dangers of radicalization as the region has been adversely affected by radicalization and violent extremism. The session aimed at bringing together 600 youths from primary and secondary schools within the County. The focus of the forum was: debating for peace, essay marking and presentation by various schools as well as empowering learning institutions that have already established the Amani Peace clubs. During the opening sessions, Mr. Hassan Mohamed the Commission secretary proceeded to congratulate those institutions that have established Amani peace club for the tremendous job they have been doing. As a way of strengthening national unity and identity, Mr. Hassan recognized the National Anthem and how it contains a message that unites us as one Nation. “The idea of translating the National Anthem to mother tongue language was started by Amani Clubs in a bid to make it relatable, easy to understand and spread unity to all the 47 tribes in our country Kenya,” he said. The Commission facilitated the workshop through providing certificates, and publications such as Handbook for Reconciliation, Amani Club Guidelines and the Cohesion Bulletin. The publications are meant to give out more information concerning the progress and achievements of the Commission.
