In an effort to stop violent extremism among the Muslim youth the project organized a regional Framework Muslim civil society conference on countering violent extremism. On March 26-27, 2017 a regional conference was organized to formulate a united strong regional Muslim civil society voice to counter violent extremism; this was due to the incidences of terror attack within and beyond the region considered to have been perpetrated by Islam groups who are casting a dark shadow on the civil nature of Islam. Kenya was considered to be grappling with terror attacks believed to conduct by the Somalia Al-Shabab.
An intervention to increase positive attitudes and address misconception about the Somali community. There is improved social cohesion among the Somali and the Uganda community in the slum areas in Kisenyi. Nine Social interaction soccer matches were played between the Somali and the Ugandan community. Before the Somali community could not associate with the Uganda locals.
They even never used to welcome one another in their homes. The football tournament was successful and the Somalis got to know that they are part of the Ugandan community.
The project helped to unveil differences in cultural practices, beliefs and norms. This has improved the appreciation of the different cultures, everyone got to know about the Somali culture and the Uganda culture thereby making it easy to respect each and everyone’s culture. For example Somali girls cannot be exposed to outdoor games like net ball; they instead preferred indoor games like chess.
