Since the first case of COVID-19 was reported in Kenya, on March 13th 2020, the government put in place measures to limit the spread of the disease and this negatively impacted vulnerable groups including refugees. At the same time, existing inequalities are exacerbated in any crisis, and women, girls, and other vulnerable populations are at increased risk of gender‐based violence (GBV) and intimate partner violence (IPV), other safety/security threats, and denial of movements, rights, or services. As reported by Kenya’s National Council on Administration of Justice, since the start of COVID-19, there has been a significant spike in sexual offences in many parts of the country and in some cases, the perpetrators are close relatives, guardians and/or persons living with the victims. These increased protection risks make the availability of specialized EVAW/G programming more important than ever.
With funding from United Nations Trust Fund (UNTF) for EVAW/G (this project, Community Based Prevention of Violence Against Refugee Women and Girls in Nairobi, being implemented by HIAS Refugee Trust of Kenya (also known as HIAS Kenya), over a period of 17 months.

The goal of the project is to contribute to refugee women and girls facing less interpersonal violence among the urban refugee population in Nairobi County by 2022. The project aims to achieve the following outcome: HIAS and its
stakeholders are institutionally strengthened to sustainably respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and other crises while maintaining or adapting existing interventions to EVAW/G with a focus on the most vulnerable women and girls.
