Company description
A rising economic force in Africa, Kenya is also a growing business hub. Yet, as the country makes political and economic advances, it continues to struggle with large income disparities, considerable poverty, and the effects of climate change. Socially, many Kenyans affiliate themselves closely with one of the country's 43 ethnic groups. Those ties create strong social bonds that at times lead to conflict.

More than half of Kenya's people live in poverty. This is especially severe in the Northern Arid Lands where 74–97% of people live below the poverty line. Most Kenyans are family farmers and many are unable to produce enough safe, nutritious food to maintain healthy lives. Along with degraded land, poor roads and limited access to clean water, they are threatened by erratic  
Show more weather that causes harsh and recurring droughts punctuated by flooding during rainy seasons. For example, the severe drought in 2011 left more than 10 million people in East Africa close to starvation. Severe drought again gripped the nation in 2017, followed by devastating floods, displacing 332,000 people and killing 183 more in the first half of 2018.

To help Kenyans overcome these challenges, CRS Kenya empowers local partners across sectors to build community resilience and prosperity through practical, evidence-based programs.
