'End of Thinking Capacity' is the name that has been given to Kapturo village in North Baringo County- Kenya. This area was the venue of a three-day Creators of Peace Circle that took place from the 6-8 July 2016. The Peace Circle brought together a group of twenty women; ten from the Pokot and ten from the Tugen communities. This was necessitated by the fact that the area is at the border of the Tugen and Pokot communities that have a history of not seeing eye to eye. Besides the twenty women, three men also attended the Peace Circle training. This training was part of the ongoing Baringo Peace Project that was launched in October of 2015, as part of the Creators of Peace (CoP)-Kenya’s effort in bringing sustainable peace in this volatile County.
