Programme Officer - Nairobi, Kenya


Jamii Thabiti Programme
  • Jamii Thabiti aims to increase security and safety for men, women and children in Kenya through increasing the capacity of key institutions (such as the police and county government) to prevent and respond to violence
  • Until December 2017
  • Nairobi Kenya
The Programme
Security represents a significant challenge for Kenya. Poor and marginalised Kenyans suffer from a multiplicity of violent attacks. Almost 500 Kenyans were killed and over 55,000 displaced due to inter-communal violence and resource conflicts during 2013[1]. Women and children were most affected by the brunt of sexual violence, killings, injuries, and loss of property and displacement that occurred. Kenya ranks at 12/124 in the Global Terrorism Index[2]. A nationwide perception survey reported that approximately 20% of respondents had been victims of crime or violence during the preceding year[3]. Countrywide, 39% of Kenyan women aged 15-49 have experienced sexual or physical violence, according to the latest Kenya Democratic Health survey[4].
In order to address these high levels of violence DFID Kenya established the Jamii Thabiti Programme, also known as the Kenya Improving Community Security Programme (ICS). Jamii Thabiti is a £13.5 million, 3.5 year[5] DFID funded problem driven programme that aims to increase security and safety for men, women and children in Kenya through increasing the capacity of key institutions (such as the police and county government) to prevent and respond to violence. In doing so, the programme will address three types of violence: criminal violence, inter-communal violence and violence against women and girls (VAWG) initially in eight counties: Kisumu, Bungoma, Wajir, Mandera Nakuru, Baringo, Kwale and Kilifi.
The programme brings together DFID’s work on conflict resolution, police reform and violence against women and girls in Kenya. It is designed to respond to opportunity presented by devolved government under the 2010 constitution in Kenya and will work at the national, county and local level to address specific drivers of violence and insecurity. The Impact of the programme is “increased security and safety for men, women and children in Kenya through greater capacity to prevent and respond to violence.” The Outcome is “improved safety and security institutions at national level and in 8 counties that provide more effective, accountable and responsive services to a public that is actively engaged in improving safety and security.”
The outputs are:
  • Output 1: Strengthened national frameworks for enabling improved safety and security interventions at the county level.
  • Output 2: Enhanced effectiveness, coordination, oversight and accountability of safety and security actors at the county level.
  • Output 3: Improved community knowledge of, and interaction with, safety and security service providers in resolving violence.
  • Output 4: ICS programme is supporting effective partnerships, programming and lessons learning at the national level.
