Improving Community Safety and Cohesion
Kisumu county remains an epicenter of violence. Cattle rustling has led to sequential conflicts with fatalities and destruction of property compounded by land disputes. The county also suffers ethno-political violence and is home to major organized criminal groups.
Improved community safety and security through enhancing communication and collaboration between state and non-state actors.
MODEL & STRATEGY
Project is working through local partners, building their capacities, both financial and technical to respond to Peace and Security issues, initially targeting seven counties but with plans to extend in the later years across the country with peace and policy initiatives both at National and County levels.
Community forums and coordination meetings were organized to strengthen collaboration between state and non-state actors in addressing youth at-risk, violent gang activities and extremism. The networking platforms were attended by a total of 140 representatives from the national and county government, the police, the Council of Elders, the media as well as religious, youth and civil society leaders.
