ORGANIZATION’S NAME: NORTHERN ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION
REG NO: OP.218/051/15-185/10134

ETHNIC INCLUSION

We have invited Kenyans from many different counties – Nairobi, Vihiga, Muranga, Kisumu, Nyeri, Laikipia, Kajiado, Mandera, Garissa, Kwale, Makueni among others –to Garissa County to foster peace, love and unity among Kenyans to stand together as ONE NATION despite the constant terror acts that is aimed at dividing Kenyans along ethnic and religious lines.

SPONSORING EDUCATION

In line with our objectives of mentoring and career guidance, we visited several schools. We were saddened by the dire state of affairs. Teaching has been paralyzed in almost all schools. The students and the pupils have been without teachers for two terms. They have not covered the syllabus. Class eight and form four students are most disadvantaged for they have to compete against other Kenyans who are privileged to have covered syllabus and got full time guidance and preparation for exams by their teachers.

PEACE CAMPAIGNS

We met with parliamentary security committee who visited Garissa University College after our five day peace campaign. We organized a meeting between them and the staff of the university who were present when the terrorist attack happened. The security committee was briefed about what transpired and the security lapses that led to death of the 147 students. The county commissioner, The AP commandant, the police boss, the KDF boss
and other members of the county security team accompanied the parliamentary security team.

STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS

The closure of Garissa University has been the impetus to the mass desertion of duty by teachers in primary and secondary schools citing insecurity after the numerous Al- Shaabab attacks. We have organized, together with Africa Queen of Hearts, a five (5) day peace conference in Garissa. We have camped at Garissa University and spent 5 nights in the same dormitories where students were massacred as a show of solidarity with them and as a protest against terrorists. We ate from their dining hall, sat on their benches, showered in
their bathrooms and played soccer on their pitch. We spent a whole day at Elgon Hall where
80% of the students died. There were prayer sessions from both Muslims and Christians for
both the deceased and the bereaved. We sang the nation anthem in many local languages
of Kenyans to express our unity. The unbreakable spirit of Kenyans was clearly manifested.
