Located in East Africa, Kenya is full of natural beauty and lays claim to part of Lake Victoria, the world’s second largest fresh water lake. Kenyans are very community-oriented and place high value on taking care of each other.
However, health issues are a major concern for many communities in Kenya. Poor water quality, HIV/AIDS and parasites often prevent parents from fully supporting their children in school or providing adequate resources for their health.
Alongside schools and communities, we help families overcome physical barriers to health and economic wellbeing. We work in both rural and urban communities throughout Kenya with a strong presence in the urban slums of Nairobi. To learn more about Feed the Children’s work in Kenya, read our 2016 Annual Report.
