Over 30% of children have fall victims or are vulnerable to CSEC and drug abuse in this tourism hub area of Diani and Ukunda town and its environs. This has been due to due negative social impacts of tourism as Children are exposed to night life in the ever mushrooming night clubs in Diani beach 11km stretch filled with hotels and beach restaurants/nights clubs..
