About Us

Peace and Development Network Trust (PeaceNet Kenya) is a national networking and partnership building organization providing a platform for CSOs, and other peace actors committed to collaboration and mobilization of national and regional initiatives for peace building, promotion of justice and conflict transformation.

The idea to set up the organization was initiated by three organizations namely Oxfam GB, the Mennonite Central Committee and the Anglican Development Desk, who were collaborating, in 1992, on providing relief support to victims of politically motivated ethnic violence in Kenya. In 1993, the Ethnic Clashes Network (ECN), was established in recognition of the need for continued coordination of relief and advocacy work around the violence, its causes and consequences, and was initially hosted by the National Council of NGOs of Kenya. In 1995, the ECN, broadened its mandate to cover broader peace issues and changed its name to Peace and Development Network (PeaceNet). In August 2005, PeaceNet registered itself as a Trust.

Victor Ngetich: I.C.T Administrator for Peace-Net Kenya.

The I.C.T needs at Peace-Net Kenya have specific demands with a multi-faceted list of requirements. This forms a knowledge base with a varied skill set. Having an administrative role makes my job very interesting. My background is in Information technology (I.T.), network administration and design. I became a member of Golden Key International society having finished in the top 15% at Edith Cowan University through a Kenyan institute. I began with an I.T. internship at Peace-Net Kenya starting in October 2016, growing my understanding of an NGOs I.C.T needs leading to a full time job. The online web based options utilised by Peace-Net Kenya has fresh challenges that come with each day. To create a context with social media or the website, that exposes the programmes managed by Peace-Net Kenya’s project officer’s. There are regular day to day tasks. There is a good level of team work, having good interpersonal skills is very useful for work. There is regular communication and sharing of ideas to ensure effective use of information. I strive to maintain a commitment to Peace-Net Kenya, its staff and regional team to work as a wholesome unit. Our connection to peace actors in a number of communities on the ground at grass route level is the essence of peace building here at Peace-Net Kenya. I am pleased to be part of these efforts.
