About Kenya

Kenya has the largest, most diversified economy and the second largest population in East Africa. It also has a young, ambitious and well-educated workforce eager to contribute to the development of the country. These factors have helped the country become a leader in mobile-money and information-and-communication technology. As “the gateway to East Africa,” Kenya  plays a vital role as a transportation hub for much of sub-Saharan Africa. 

The friendship between the Republic of Kenya and the United States dates to the dawn of Kenyan independence. As an important developing-country partner in East Africa, Kenya is a significant recipient of U.S. foreign assistance. For more than 50 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.

Annual Program Statement: 

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Kenya desires to partner with Kenyan local organizations to support community led, owned, and managed development.  This new approach will focus at the local level to empower communities to improve the lives of vulnerable populations.
