Uraia Trust implemented a three-year project titled ‘Safe and inclusive cities (SAIC.’). The project was implemented in the period covering 2019-2021. The project targeted youth (15-35 years) in the informal settlements of Nairobi and Kisumu counties. It aimed at improving safety in the informal settlements and increasing inclusion of youth in decision making processes.
The project strategy focused on building knowledge and strengthening skills of young women and men to influence urban governance and planning on safety and economic opportunities.
- Strong and vibrant youth-led organizations in Nairobi and Kisumu County that engaged in participatory governance processes. Young women and men exercised their rights and responsibilities by engaging with duty bearers in the provision of related services.
- Improved safety in Nairobi and Kisumu informal settlements because of social accountability work conducted by youth groups. This included installation of security lights along feeder roads, improvements of roads to ensure safe rides for boda-boda and matatus, improved relations among youth and security agents (police, chiefs, county commissioners).
