Request For Proposals for Partner(s) In Isiolo, Kwale & Nakuru Counties, Kenya – PROACT

ISD seeks to increase community resilience to violence in Isiolo, Nakuru and Kwale Counties, with the long-term vision to support highly vulnerable communities in Kenya through a coordination mechanism that is ethical, effective and sustainable. To achieve this, PROACT envisions a series of activities, which will improve the capacity of existing county-level violence prevention structures and enhance the coordination of efforts across county-level actors. This will be undertaken through enhancing support for and awareness of a human rights-framework for community-based interventions, increased cooperation and trust amongst actors, strengthened capacity and knowledge of community team actors, and improving sustainability mechanisms.

More broadly, PROACT is seeking to effectively and sustainably address the issues of polarisation, radicalisation, and extremism amongst highly vulnerable populations in Kenya and improve the capabilities of existing local P/CVE structures and actors in three target counties across Kenya. Central to this is coordinating existing actors at the county level in order to strengthen or build multi-sectorial approaches to community-based interventions.

ISD is therefore seeking implementing partner(s) who can play a lead role in engaging violence prevention actors, including civil society, county governments, and national government including security services and criminal justice system actors.

About the Organization

About the Institute for Strategic Dialogue

Founded in 2006, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) is a leading global ‘think and do’ tank dedicated to understanding and innovating real-world responses to the rising tide of polarisation, hate and extremism of all forms. We combine anthropological research, expertise in international extremist movements and an advanced digital analysis capability that tracks hate, disinformation and extremism online, with policy advisory support and training to governments and cities around the world. We also work to empower youth and community influencers internationally through our pioneering education, technology and communications programmes.

Innovating, trialling and scaling data-driven solutions across our unique networks of community influencers, city and government officials and tech sector partnerships, we work to mount a soft power strategy, proportional in influence and impact to the ever-more sophisticated, cross-border polarisation and recruitment machineries of state and non-state actors promulgating hate, division and conflict.
