Speeches Shim

Kenya has the largest, most diversified economy and the second largest population in East Africa. Kenya plays a vital role as a transportation hub for much of sub-Saharan Africa. It is home to a young, ambitious, and well-educated workforce eager to contribute to the country’s development, which has helped Kenya become a leader in mobile-money and communication technology.

United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is reorienting its strategies, partnership models, and program practices to achieve greater development--the Journey to Self-Reliance (J2SR). As a partner on this journey, the U.S. government through USAID supports Kenya’s national government, counties, civil societies, faith-based organizations and private sectors to realize locally-sustained results. 

The friendship between the Republic of Kenya and the United States dates to the dawn of Kenyan independence. As an important developing-country partner, Kenya is a significant recipient of U.S. foreign assistance. For 60 years, USAID has worked closely with the Kenyan government, the private sector, and civil society to:

  • Advance access to education;
  • Improve quality healthcare through nutrition, family planning, and maternal and child health, malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and strengthening health programs;
  • Lay a foundation for long-term economic growth through trade, agriculture, and infrastructure programs; and
  • Make devolution work for the benefit of all Kenyans through democracy, governance and conflict programs.
