Safe Havens International has been selected to perform a school security assessment for an independent Christian school in Nairobi, Kenya. Safe Havens Executive Director Michael Dorn will travel to Kenya for a week in January to conduct the on-site portion of the assessment while Steve Satterly, Dr. Sonayia Shepherd, Russell Bentley, and Phuong Nguyen will provide off-site research, analysis, and report preparation. Safe Havens routinely performs school security assessments for independent schools across the nation and has been receiving an increasing number of requests to perform school security assessments not only in the U.S. but in other countries as well. Safe Havens has also been selected to conduct a school security assessment in Nigeria and is being considered for a school security assessment project for an independent school in Thailand.
As is our practice on high-risk targets for terrorism, we will not be identifying the school by name prior to the site visit. Two parents from the school were killed and two students who attend the school were wounded in the tragic terrorist attack at a Nairobi shopping mall. Safe Havens feels deeply honored to be entrusted to perform this detailed and particularly high-stakes independent school security assessment.
