Ending Cycles of Violence II adds the story of the mostly peaceful 2013 election and the work of Quakers to make it so. Citizen reporters were trained. They observed throughout the campaign
and made their reports anonymously via text messages (SMS).
Voter education prepared the voters for all the changes ensuing from the new Kenya constitution. Accredited election observers reported on the election itself.
The extensive community peacemaking through trauma healing workshops in the Mt. Elgon area was thoroughly assessed with findings that were “overwhelmingly positive, making it clear that
[Friends] programmes have bettered the lives of individuals on Mt. Elgon and moved the culture there toward a more peaceful one."
