ChildFund International in Kenya
Kenya is an independent republic on the Indian Ocean. Kenya is considered the economic and transportation hub of East Africa, and its GDP has grown about 5 percent annually, benefiting a growing middle class.
Nonetheless, unemployment is at about 40 percent, and inadequate infrastructure and corruption have hampered its economic growth and development. Inflation and food shortages have further plagued the country since 2012.
ChildFund Kenya implements a host of projects through 38 local partner organizations that assist children and youth in 25 counties. The projects focus on education, health, water and sanitation, economic livelihoods and emergency response.
ChildFund has served children in Kenya since 1960.
