Film Inspires Unity after Turbulent Election Season in Kenya

After a turbulent election season, a message of peace and reconciliation between disparate groups is important in Kenya. 

Global Peace Foundation is one of the main sponsors of the film "Once Upon a Dance" directed by Kevin Odhiambo. This film promotes a message of cohesion, integration, and peaceful coexistence through Kenya's dance culture. It is a reminder of the heated election year the country went through, yet at the end of the film, all come together and look forward to a united future. 

"With the atmosphere we have, now that Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga decided to negotiate and are working together, I think this country is going to leapfrog." -Daniel Juma (Director, GPF Kenya)

The film is having a launch and screening at Centre for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education in Africa (CEMASTEA) and will be made public in April 2018.

"If we are able to invest in our young people today, then we are creating a foundation for the realization of vision 2030 tomorrow." -Daniel Juma
