“In my community, some children do not attend school as they are involved in herding animals and household chores. This is bad” – Ruth, 10 years
Home to some of the world’s most ancient tribes, Kenya's ethnic diversity has produced a vibrant culture but is also behind much of the country’s present-day conflict. Presidential elections in 2007 led to widespread unrest, with political parties in Kenya typically falling under tribal lines. Other pressing challenges include high rates of poverty and child malnutrition, high youth unemployment and drought that frequently puts millions of people at risk. ChildFund Kenya works across 24 counties, implementing culturally appropriate, locally run programs focused on the healthy development of children and young people. ChildFund is committed to reducing childhood illnesses, increasing access to quality education and supporting young people to acquire livelihood and leadership skills.
