In December 2007, Kenya - long considered one of the most stable countries in East Africa - descended into political violence following disputed presidential elections. The city of Eldoret was one of the locations where the violence escalated. Mercy Corps decided to use sport in Eldoret as a means to change perceptions between tribes, build peace, promote reconciliation and give young people a hope for the future. The program was called LEAP Sport and is being run by a local organisation called A-STEP. In May 2010, InsightShare travelled to Eldoret Kenya to facilitate a workshop on Participatory Video (PV) and the Most Significant Change (MSC) method as a way to evaluate the LEAP programme. This is the story of the workshop, but also of the young people that sport touched and transformed.
