Kenya is considered a haven of stability and a leading economy in the Horn of Africa and East Africa region. However, it also faces the impacts of violent extremism and terrorist threats and hosts a large number of refugees, primarily fleeing conflict and the adverse effects of climate change in South Sudan and Somalia.

We are building upon Kenya's efforts to prevent and counter violent extremism, helping to enhance stability in conflict-prone areas by creating jobs for young people and promoting dialogue between vulnerable communities and local authorities.

We also aim to work in close cooperation with the government and other key stakeholders, such as UNHCR, to provide opportunities for self-reliance while ensuring the protection of refugees generously hosted in Kenya, as well as their host communities.
