What we do, our approach and how we help! Kumekucha & Green String Network


Celebrating and Nurturing Women’s Leadership in Peacebuilding Women from different countries joined together, representing Kenya , Uganda, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and USA.


Kumekucha: 'It’s a New Dawn' is a social healing program designed to promote the long process of community healing and social reconciliation within Kenya’s diverse cultural landscape. Integral to Kumekucha are community-wide small group dialogues that are organised by local leaders and led by trained community facilitators. Kumekucha is the Kiswahili translation for “it’s a new dawn”. In coastal slang, it also means “something is going down”. The name was selected to symbolise a self- awakening and harnessing the idea of a new, energised beginning for Kenya regardless of our past.
