Pokot archers of Kenya

Most boys of the Pokot tribe in Alale, Kenya, are unable to attend school due to their daily duty of cattle herding and their role as âwarriorsâ to protect against cattle rustlers of the neighboring Turkana tribe. Dinah Hellen Chebitwey, a 52-year-old early childhood education officer, teaches Pokot boys the game of archery in an attempt to transform their skills into a means of peace-building. Chebitwey hopes to engage her counterpart in Turkana to create a program where boys from two rival communities can compete in the game of archery to deepen exchanges and learn to embrace peace. –By European Pressphoto Agency http://ift.tt/1wrakzG
