Kadogo Kazuri women’s grassroots activism in Kibra Slum, Kenya combines a commitment to peacebuilding within their homes and community, and the basic survival of their children and themselves. They are concerned on issues that affect their safety, housing, food, education, income, and medical care. These concerns brought them together in 2007 as they sought ways to achieve relative stability through the pooling together of resources and creating a table-top banking system. Since most of the members do not have a stable income nor a bank account. They became activists of peace when their neighbourhoods in the Kibera slum experienced post-election and ethnic violence.
