Together with Child Fund and Childline Kenya, LISP is implementing a project called “Safe CLICS” whose focus is on Child Online Safety in 4 counties namely: Nairobi, Mombasa, Kiambu and Kilifi. The project aims to systematically strengthenKenyan government agencies’ capacity to prevent and respond to OCSEA, improve children’s self-protection skills with the support of caregivers and communities, strengthen public awareness of OCSEA and connections to reporting and referral services. The project will run for 3 years.

The project objectives

This project is anchored on the following 3 objectives;

  1. Strengthen Kenya’s national infrastructure, focusing on social care capacity, to prevent and respond to online offending against children
  2. Improve early intervention to prevent victimization of children and victim support to assist in recovery 
  3. Engage families and caregivers in preventing the sexual exploitation and abuse of children and responding to harmful or unwanted experiences online

Lifeskills promoters focus is on the second objective which aims at improving early intervention to prevent victimization of children and victim support to assist in recovery. LISP will be able to achieve this objective by;

  • Building the capacity of teachers and school leadership to be able to identify and prevent OCSEA and be able to support victims of OCSEA through referrals.
