Coast region comprises Mombasa, Kwale, Kilifi and Lamu counties. The prevalent security challenges include incidences of radicalization and violent extremism, the emergence of organized gangs fueling criminal violence and inter-communal conflicts across the region. In this insecure context, women and girls bear the greatest brunt of gender-based violence both in domestic and social spaces.
REINVENT interventions in the region include:
- Improving community safety and security by spurring equitable service delivery through local communities, County and National Government agencies.
- Supporting community policing and strengthening accountability among security agencies
