Despite being one of Africa’s most developed nations, the gap between rich and poor in Kenya is growing. CARE has been here in since 1968, supporting the work of Harambee, the village-level self-help movement. CARE initially provided schools and worked on community development and long-term agro-forestry projects.
Today CARE works with communities on health, livelihoods, water and sanitation, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction. We support refugees with water and hygiene, food and formal education in camps along the Somali border. We also work with civil society and local organizations to help them build their skills and knowledge.
