IWA - Institute of World Affairs
Washington D.C USA
Working at the Intersection of Peacebuilding, Policy & Education for over 90 Years
Since 1924, the Institute of World Affairs has been working to bring together individuals and communities to better understand and resolve conflict. This includes cutting-edge research on the practice and effectiveness of international peacebuilding as well as on-the-ground initiatives to bring local communities, business leaders, and government representatives together in constructive dialogue.
Professional development programs and web-based learning initiatives designed for diplomats and staff of international organizations help bridge the divide between learning and practice. Round table discussions, conferences, and workshops bring together policy experts, community leaders, and decision makers.

JOEL OMINO SECONDARY SCHOOL
KISUMU , KENYA
Students were suffering from water born diseases caused by drinking unsafe water in the school and at home. This affected their learning in school and regular duties as well as faced with huge medical bills.
Students were trained on how to make and maintain Biosand Water Filter. They were able to pass this knowledge and skill to the community.
Students and members of the community are now able to attend school and their regular duties with less or no disruption caused by water born diseases and at the same time access safe drinking water at a cheaper cost and less or zero medical bill.
The President of Kenya H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta listens to the students explaining how the Filter works.

The word “Shophar” is Hebrew word meaning horn or trumpet (Britannica Encyclopedia) To the Hebrew mind horns were potent symbols (Bill Bratt) and horns were blown:
on joyful occasions
to confuse enemies
at the beginning of every month
to call sacred assembly
as the sound of war
Shophar Kenya, metaphorically shall make a breakthrough for ESD within the SDG’s remaining period for communities to embrace change for sustainable development as we “blow” the Shophar during implementation. The Shophar shall be “blown” to break “walls” that prevent sustainable social, economic, environmental and cultural development of our society like the walls of biblical Jericho that fell down when the Shophar was blown (Joshua 6:1ff) – and the enemies fled away.
