Jamii Thabiti Programme a Coffey-led DFID UK-funded programme that aims to increase security and safety for men, women and children in Kenya by increasing the capacity of key institutions to prevent and respond to violence has commenced a partnership with NGEC in line with the Commission’s gender based violence (GBV) programs.
The program funded to the tune of 30 million Kenya shillings, will focus its interventions across eight counties-Kisumu, Bungoma, Nakuru, Baringo, Wajir, Mandera, Kwale and Kilifi and at the national level to ensure that hundreds of thousands of Kenyans benefit from services which address crime and violence. Jamii Thabiti is working to increase the reporting of violence against women and girls (VAWG) as well as increasing women’s participation at community security forums.
The program will be implemented over a period of two years commencing April 2016 to November 2017. The partnership will be managed through a Resource Partner, Collaborative Center for Gender and Development (CCGD).
