Come and meet some really fine people. Samuel is a young nursing student, a Pokot who is committed to this peace initiative. His nursing degree is sponsored as a part of this project, in exchange for his promise of serving the Pokots and Turkanas for several years upon completion of his education. Steven, too, is a sponsored nursing student, a Turkana, who with Samuel will demonstrate by his commitment to working together with members of the other tribe that peace between them can be achieved and that enemies can become friends and colleagues.
