Likoni Center

Likoni is a community in Mombasa that is considered to be the poorest community in all of Mombasa County. There is a strong Muslim presence in this community, and there is a high rate of crime, intravenous drug use, prostitution, and teen pregnancy— all of which contribute to the unusually high rate of HIV (9.8%). Francis (Mombasa Regional Coordinator) has reported that, due to the rate of HIV and incredibly dense population in this area, the leadership team is considering placing more than once center in this large community over the next few years.
