Kenya is located in East Africa and has the largest economy in Southeast and Central Africa in terms of GDP. Although only four percent of its land is arable, over 50 percent of Kenya‘s exports are agricultural goods. In total, more than 40 different ethnic groups live in the state, speaking more than 50 different languages and dialects.
Together with our local partners, we enable young people from the poorest backgrounds, especially women, to gain access to qualified schooling or vocational training and we support them in setting up and developing their small businesses.
Despite strong economic growth, hunger, poverty and a lack of health care continue to pose major challenges for the country, especially in rural areas. Positive developments could be observed above all in infant mortality and life expectancy. Although the literacy rate is steadily increasing, educational opportunities for young people are limited. Many young people from poor backgrounds have no vocational training and thus little chance of finding a job.
