Magazine: Jamii Thabiti

Jamii Thabiti Programme is about improving community security and safety. It intends to reduce levels of criminal violence, inter-communal violence and violence against women and girls by working with authorities, service providers and civil society organisations at national and county levels. The Programme will build on the achievements of improved legislation, police accountability as well as new conflict and security architecture at the county level. It will provide a more people-centred, longterm approach to peacebuilding, police reform and community security. With a focus on data collection and the use of statistics,Jamii Thabiti Programme will measure the impact of this programming and will disseminate the lessons learned.


Jamii Thabiti Programme is being supported by the United Kingdom through the Deaprtment for International DEvelopment (DFID). It is being implemented by Coffey International in partnership
with 40 organisations working closely with the Government of Kenya including both national and county level institutions.


Jamii Thabiti Programme will lead to a measureable improvement in the ability of national and county level institutions to tackle violence against women and girls, crime and inter-communal conflict, resulting in improved safety and security institutions at the national level and in eight counties of Kisumu, Bungoma, Kilifi, Kwale, Nakuru, Baringo, Wajir and Mandera. The anticipated programme results include quicker response to conflict and insecurity; improved policing; reduced gender based violence and better crime statistics.
