Using Football To Beat Tribal Violence
Fatuma Abdulkadir Adan grew up in the Marsabit area of Northern Kenya. Most of the families there are nomadic farmers who raise cattle. There has been a history of violent conflict between the different tribes in the area as they have competed for the best pasture land and water for their animals. She wanted to bring peace to her community, and one day she came up with an idea: get people to play football instead.
