Malindi District is one among the seven districts of the Coast Province. The district was carved out of Kilifi District in 1996 in a bid to bring administrative services closer to the people. It borders Kilifi District to the South, Tana River district to the North and Northwest and the Indian Ocean to the East.
It is located about 120 kms northeast of Mombasa and is one of the large tourist towns along the coast. In 1498, the town was a kingdom and wealthy. The economy consisted of agriculture and trade with various ports in the Indian Ocean. There were large plantations with fruits (i.e. lemons, oranges and mangoes among others), coconut palm trees, vegetables and cattle around it.
The town mainly depends on Tourism and salt manufacturing industries. However, it has great potential for farming and fishing which are yet to be fully exploited.In Malindi, there exist 6 salt manufacturing companies/ firms which also play pivotal role in the area’s economy. They include Kensalt, Mombasa Salt, Krystaline, Kemu Salt, Malindi Salt and Kurawa salt manufacturing companies.

Over the past ten years, the Ujamaa Centre has worked with people and communities in the Coastal region to enhance popular participation in socio- economic and social justice processes; community based decision- making and governance and efficient and sustainable use of natural resources.
The Center’s work has revealed that it is possible to transform the status of so many people/ communities if they are actively engaged in the development processes within their areas, influenced, capacitated and empowered on the utilization of locally available natural resources and equipped with advocacy skills to address social injustices / fight for their fundamental rights among others.
Currently, Ujamaa Center is implementing Mobilizing People- based Organizations for Equitable Access to Land and Other Natural Resources Project. The project aims to empower the poor communities of Kilifi and Malindi districts to own, access and control their land and other resources for sustainable local development.
