MUHURI seeks to enhance the capacity of the coastal communities to hold state and non-state actors accountable for human rights violations; increase public participation in the political, social, and economic development of the coastal communities; and progressively mainstream a gender perspective into the policies, institutions, and practices of the communities. As part of its PI project, MUHURI seeks to strengthen its ongoing work in community empowerment and build its own technical expertise in the following areas: training, documentation, and advocacy.
