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.

Call for Concept Papers

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is requesting concept papers for the Kenya Inclusive Governance, Accountability, Performance and Participation (Kenya-IGAPP) Annual Program Statement (APS). Through the APS, USAID seeks to partner with Kenyans, Kenyan leaders, institutions, and organizations to improve key governance systems and processes. For more information click here.
