The 2007 / 2008 post-election violence in Kenya largely affected women and children. As an intervention, various organizations joined hands to champion peace campaigns across the country. Umeclick was one of those campaigns.
Being a Rotary and Rotaract affiliated campaign, Stephen Machua was invited to join the planning and implementation team of this campaign. His core role was to champion online mobilization of signatures and conduct university sensitization campaigns because young people were largely the catalyzers of previous violence.
His efforts and that of the team led to the mobilization of over 400,000 signatures across Kenya. The campaign caught the attention of the then British High Commissioner, Christian Turner and Kenyan Industrialist, Dr Manu Chandaria.
This campaign positively influenced Kenyans to conduct elections peacefully and set a precedence for subsequent elections under the new constitution.
