Building on Pact's successful implementation of PEACE II, this project works along Kenya's borders with Uganda, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Somalia to strengthen conflict-management systems and build the capacity of regional and national institutions to stem cross-border conflict.
Selam Ekisil (SEEK)
The Selam Ekisil, or SEEK, project adopts a conflict systems based approach to address the multiple causes of conflict in cross border areas and to promote peace building, conflict management and conflict resolution capacity at the community and cross border levels. It is part of the EU’s programme for Collaboration in the Cross Border areas of the Horn of Africa, working to prevent and mitigate the impact of local conflict and to promote economic development and greater resilience in four different cross border regions. The three-year project addresses drivers of conflict, insecurity and instability, while strengthening the systems and institutions that peacefully manage and resolve conflict on the border of Southwest Ethiopia and Northwest Kenya.
The Yetu Initiative is strengthening the capacity of Kenyan civil society organizations to engage with citizens and carry out their missions. By helping local organizations to implement their own projects and campaigns and address issues of local concern, the Yetu Initiative is cultivating a culture of community-driven philanthropy, empowering communities to solve their own problems, reducing dependency on foreign donors and creating sustainable impact. Pact is using its unique capacity development tools to provide targeted, contextualized support to its partner organizations.

To make the association more effective and efficient, Pact is strengthening its leadership, systems, policies and procedures, as well as its capacity to mobilize resources and engage in advocacy and networking. The two-year project is helping the association establish a track record of implementing high-quality cancer prevention programs at the local and national levels.
