The 11.5-kilometer asphalt road from Malindi-Lamu to the Luigi Broglio Italian Space Center in Ngomeni, an intensive care unit at the Malindi District Hospital, improvements to the health center in Mambrui, and a range of infrastructure for the secondary school in Ngomeni, including three years' support for 60 students at the institution.

These are the main projects to the credit of the Italian Development Cooperation (AICS), confirmed at an official ceremony in Malindi on Tuesday, as part of the second phase of the "Malindi Integrated Socio-Health Development Program," which will be headed by Kenya's Coast Development Authority (CDA).
The ceremony was attended by the owner of the AICS office in Nairobi, Giovanni Grandi, Kilifi County Governor Gideon Mung'aro and Deputy Minister of Economic Development, Idris Dokota, as well as leaders from the CDA and local authorities.

The event marks the launch of a major initiative aimed at accelerating the development of the sub-counties of Malindi and Magarini in coastal Kilifi County through interventions in the areas of education, health, infrastructure, and strengthening local institutions. The initiative is financed by Italy through a subsidized aid credit worth 6.4 million euros.

The first phase of the Mishdp, funded by Italian Cooperation and implemented by Cda, was completed in 2012 and focused on the development of Malindi and Magarini. This first phase saw the construction of basic infrastructure in the health, education and infrastructure sectors in the areas surrounding the Italian Space Center "Luigi Broglio" in Malindi, recently visited by Italian President Sergio Mattarella.

"The first set of interventions was conceived as a first step toward the integrated development of the area," said Giovanni Grandi -, through phase two, the Italian Cooperation intends to renew its support to the Government of Kenya in its efforts to improve access to basic services to the population, according to the partnership approach that guides the friendship and cooperation relationship between Italy and Kenya.
