Hi Angi,

Thank you for your response.
We will be very pleased to collaborate with your team.
While many parts of the country have been affected by acts of terrorism in the recent past, the coastal region has suffered the most. Mombasa County, which is the epicenter of the coastal region, has had its fair share of devastation associated with terrorist attacks and radicalization. Various local and international terrorist organizations and outlawed groups such as Al Qaeda, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Al Shabaab and Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) all have some significant presence in Mombasa County, and therefore your intervention is very welcome and needed.
We would also like to appeal to any other group interested to partner with us to drop us an email and we would be more than happy to collaborate.

Thank you James for your commendation, this will be the second CVE program In the coast of Kenya to deal with both preventive and rebilitation.
We will be borrowing from what has worked in other places and opportunities in those that did not work. The resource centre will welcome all youths and tailor the different interventions to their needs with a bias towards CVE.
The centeĊ™ will partner with the County government in vocational training, which has worked well in a previous project I worked on.
There will be counselling, vocational training and production, sports activities, talent management, recreational activities, mentorship.
We already have a database of employers we have worked with before and we will be engaging more, including microfinance companies.
We will also be working with the County youth parliament forum.

This will be the only fully functional, state of the art Youth Resource center in the coastal region. To be used for various activities that enhance learning, innovation and collaboration. A safe haven for vulnerable youths in the coastal region of Kenya.
