Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB) Project goal is to promote freedom of religion and belief by enhancing understanding of the right and promoting its enjoyment by all individuals and communities. The project will further encourage state security officials’ observance and compliance of the right as guaranteed in the constitution and international human rights instruments.

The following are the objectives of the project:

To introduce responsible enjoyment of religious freedom as a counter narrative to violent extremism and extra judicial killings;

To promote tolerance and understanding between persons of different faiths at the Coast of Kenya;

To enhance respect for rule of law and human rights (including FoRB) amongst state actors particularly the police in counter terrorism efforts; and

To increase partnership and cooperation anchored on religious freedom and rule of law between police and youth within the Coastal region.
