It is with great honour and humility that I step into the role of the patron of the Amani Club. I am deeply grateful for the trust and confidence placed in me by all of you.

I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the immense contribution of someone instrumental in my journey to this point. Mrs. Nyaga Purity, your mentorship has been invaluable. Your guidance, wisdom, and unwavering support have shaped me into the person I am today. I am forever indebted to you for your belief in me and for lighting the path that has led me here.

As I assume this new responsibility, I do so with a sense of purpose and commitment. The Amani Club stands for unity, peace, and progress, values that resonate deeply with me. I pledge to uphold these ideals and to work tirelessly alongside every one of you to advance our shared mission.

To Mrs. Nyaga P., as you embark on your new role as the Deputy Principal, I extend my heartfelt congratulations. Your dedication to education and your passion for nurturing young minds are truly inspiring. I do not doubt that you will excel in your new station, just as you have in every endeavour you have undertaken.

As we embrace change and embrace new beginnings, let us do so with optimism and determination. Together, we can make a difference, not just within the confines of our club, but in our communities and beyond.

Thank you, once again, for entrusting me with this privilege. Let us strive for peace, unity, and progress, knowing that anything is possible with perseverance and solidarity.



The National Cohesion and Integration Commission in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has facilitated the establishment of Peace (Amani) Clubs in institutions of learning in Kenya. Amani Clubs were first established in 2014 to build a platform for social dialogue and dispute resolution, mediation, and entrenching peace education activities among youths in different schools in the country. This is in cognizance of the pivotal role the youth play in nation-building and their potential to make a difference in eliminating discrimination based on ethnicity and other traits that undermine cohesion and integration.

The Commission’s support for the establishment of Amani (Peace) Clubs is in partial fulfilment of Section 25 of the National Cohesion and Integration (NCI) Act, 2008, which outlines the objectives of the creation of the Commission, and in particular subsection (2) which provides that: Without prejudice to the generality of subsection (1), the Commission shall: (a) promote the elimination of all forms of discrimination based on ethnicity and race and (d) plan, supervise, coordinate and promote educational and training programmes to create public awareness, support and advancement of peace and harmony among ethnic communities and racial groups.

The goal of Amani (Peace) Clubs is to promote appreciation of diversity, peaceful co-existence, and dispute resolution among students. Amani Clubs are a suitable tool for arresting negative ethnic tendencies by providing young people with a platform to develop a culture of positive values and embrace personal responsibility.  Amani Club members are expected to influence other youth, their communities and their parents thus causing a ripple effect in the promotion of national cohesion and integration. Additionally, the clubs enhance good character and self-discipline among the target group. Amani Clubs empower the youth to among other things, promote peace in their day-to-day lives through words and actions; deal with life’s challenges peacefully; and become responsible citizens. 

Amani (Peace) Clubs engage in Annual National Essay writing competitions on topics related to peacebuilding, conflict resolution, management of diversity, national cohesion, and integration. Through Amani Clubs, young people are engaged in several programs and activities that value peace and develop peace-building skills. This enables the country to create a society of people who are tolerant and respectful to divergent views; able to dialogue instead of resulting to physical confrontations; able to stand against incitement to violence; able to reach out to others and co-exist peacefully; and able to engage in democratic processes peacefully and from an Amani Clubs help fight bullying, radicalization, and rivalry in schools.
