Our Efforts in Kenya
Our Accelerating Women’s Empowerment program in Kenya empowers women and vulnerable groups to improve their socio-economic well-being. We provide technical assistance to enhance the productivity and market reach of businesses operating in dynamic sectors, like agriculture and tourism. We build the capacity of co-operatives and associations that support farmers and advance community economic development.

Building Capacity for Tourism and Hospitality
Our program builds competitive and environmentally sustainable businesses as well as productive and resilient institutions, tourism operators and associations.
Enhancing Health and Nutrition
We’re making nutritious food more accessible by supporting businesses that produce healthy and affordable products.
How We’ve Made a Difference in Kenya
▪ We partnered with the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology to strengthen entrepreneurship skills and training for students, as well as opportunities for recipients of the Regional Scholarship and Innovation Fund.
▪ We developed innovative eco-tourism marketing strategies in collaboration with Mlilo Community Tours and Safaris Company.
▪ With Taita Taveta Banana (Tataba) Farmers Co-Operative Society, we mapped out the banana value chain and developed strategies to promote the inclusion of women and youth.
