Ending Cycles of Violence II: Kenyan Quaker Peacemaking Response to 2007 and 2013 Elections

Citizen reporters were trained and observed throughout the campaign and made their reports anonymously via text messages (SMS).

Elgon area was thoroughly assessed with findings that were "overwhelmingly positive, making it clear that AGLI/FCPT/CAPI/TTT programmes have bettered the lives of individuals on Mt. Elgon.
