One of Africa’s most developed countries, Kenya is also one of the most unequal - and more than half the population are children.
The places where we work present huge challenges, from severe drought conditions, a 500,000-strong refugee population and continuing issues of neonatal mortality, poor access to education, sexual violence.
Save the Children has been providing support to children in Kenya through our development and humanitarian programmes since 1950.
We work with communities, local partners, and the government to design and deliver programmes to meet the needs of the most deprived children. We work towards improving healthcare, sustainable livelihoods, child protection, education and disaster relief.
