About Acord International

ACORD has been working in Kenya since 2005 in response to the chronic droughts faced by pastoralist communities along the Kenya and Tanzania border and recently the northern regions of Marsabit and Mandera. In the Western part of Kenya, the Community Social Peace and Reconciliation Methodology (CSPR... read more) was applied in response to the post-election violence with a view to supporting peace consolidation and community reconciliation. This also involves strengthening capacity of small-scale farmer and pastoralist organisations to engage in processes around the Comprehensive African Agricultural Development Programme (CAADP) and the Pastoralist Policy Framework of the African Union, agricultural plicy literacy and advocacy. >> Gender and Women's Rights: Seeking to develop a sustained behaviour change and appropriate community responses to end impunity for sexual crimes and gender based violence, ACORD is aiming to economically empower women survivors. A multi-stakeholder learning group and stronger partnership are key elements for addressing the issues of sexual violence more effectively. >> Peacebuilding: ACORD's CSPR methodology aimed at generating leadership for sustainable peace and recovery among divided communities focuses on building the capacities of the communities themselves in conflict resolution and strengthening the local mitigation mechanisms to avoid escalation of conflicts. This approach is rooted in dialogue between the divided parties to facilitate truth, healing, forgiveness and reconciliation in order to promote understanding and facilitate the formulation of an agreement on the modalities for long-term peaceful coexistence and non-violent alternatives to conflict. Communities in Sotik and Borabu have benefited from the methodology that contributed to recovery needs of post election violence victims as well as translate the National Peace Accord into practice at the community level. Recently, communities from the Bukusu, Sabaot and Teso from western Kenya also signed a social peace agreement and committed themselves to peaceful coexistence. Vision for Africa ACORD's vision is that of a society in which all citizens are equally able to achieve their rights and fulfill their responsibilities. Partners In the implementation of its programmes, ACORD works with more than 2,000 partners and many community groups in the 17 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Accountability The priorities of ACORD are transparency, accountability and openness to all stakeholders and especially towards the communities with which we work.
