What We Do
The Jamii Thabiti Programme aims to strengthen and support effective partnerships among safety and security institutions at the national level and in eight selected counties in Kenya. In this way, it hopes to lead to more effective, accountable and responsive services to communities in addressing criminal and inter-communal violence and violence against women and girls.
How we work
Jami Thabiti works at three levels: local (community), county and national. At the community level, the programme identifies locally defined problems, and supports activities designed to address the immediate problem as a means to open up opportunities to address the broader causes of violence more systematically.
At the county level, Jamii Thabiti works with security actors and stakeholders in Bungoma and Kisumu (Western cluster), Baringo and Nakuru (Rift cluster), Kilifi and Kwale (Coast cluster), and Wajir and Mandera (North East cluster) to achieve better coordination and integration and to apply lessons derived from local interventions more widely.
At the national level, the programme works with government, CSOs and other stakeholders on highly specific areas of policy and strategy development and implementation that are relevant to the problems that Jamii Thabiti is addressing at the local level.
The three forms of violence that Jamii Thabiti aims to address are:
