Kenya is a leading economy in East Africa, but faces increasing levels of extremism and terrorist threats, and hosts a large number of refugees fleeing conflict and the negative effects of climate change in South Sudan and Somalia. We are building upon Kenya's efforts to prevent and counter violent extremism, helping to increase stability in violence-prone areas by creating jobs for young people, and promoting dialogue between vulnerable communities and local authorities. We also aim to provide opportunities and protection for the large numbers of Somali and South Sudanese refugees in Kenya, as well as for their host communities.
