About Company

More than half of Kenya’s population are children. Despite the progress that has been made, high levels of inequality exist which prevents millions of children from surviving and reaching their full potential.

One in four children under the age of five are stunted, with highest rates of stunting in rural and remote areas. Neonatal mortality rates remain high, resulting in children dying within their first month of life.

Children, especially those living in rural and remote areas, struggle to access quality education, and many do not receive any early education, which is critical for their development.

Girls are facing sexual violence, with one in three girls experiencing sexual violence before their 18th birthday.

Kenya is also experiencing a youth bulge, with 78% of the population below the age of 35. These young people struggle to secure sustainable employment, and many remain unemployed.

Kenya also hosts almost 500,000 refugees from neighbouring countries in the region. More than half of these refugees are children.

And much of the country experiences extreme climatic conditions like drought, which has devastating effects on the environment and livelihoods of some of the most marginalised and vulnerable communities in Kenya.
