TLPF is a charitable organization that focuses on restoring peace and fostering economic empowerment among pastoralists. It was established in 2003 by Tegla Loroupe, a Kenyan marathon legend who is also the Foundation’s President. Essentially, TLPF focuses on rebuilding social relations and induce trust among the warring communities, showcase sports as an alternative economic livelihood factor, increase awareness on the girl child rights, foster education, champion for peace and change the perception of pastoralists towards cattle raiding as a form of livelihood. With a Vision of ‘A Peaceful, Prosperous and Just World in which Sports is a Unifying factor’, the Foundation’s goal is to restore peace among warring pastoralists through sports and create a difference in the lives of the less privileged.
