This document provides an assessment of youth development needs in the Garissa District of Kenya, and a design for a twenty-month project to address assessment findings. The assessment was guided by three framing questions: a) What is the risk level for social disaffection among Garissan youth 14-24? b) What are the conditions that contribute to the marginalization of Muslim youth? c) What are the strategic options that can shape USAID/Kenya's youth project in Garissa? The assessment drew on two methodological frameworks—the EQUIP 3 Cross-Sectoral Youth Assessment Guide and the MSI Youth and Extremism Assessment Module.
