Kenya Country Fund

Description

Contributions to the Kenya Country Fund will support Volunteer Community projects in Kenya. Education, water/sanitation, and community health projects would be funded by your generous contribution.

Peace Corps Volunteers work in education and health in rural communities in Kenya where they share technical expertise, build transferable skills, and promote cross-cultural exchange between the US and Kenya. Community Health Volunteers focus their work on reducing the impact of COVID-19 and HIV/AIDS by adopting healthy behaviors and practices to decrease its spread, decreasing the incidence of water borne infectious diseases through clean water promotion, sanitation and hygiene programs, and decreasing malnutrition through development of school and kitchen gardens.

Education Volunteers integrate gender equity, hygiene, COVID-19, and HIV content into their teaching of science, technology and math at the secondary level, and the teaching of deaf students at the primary level. Peace Corps’ return of Volunteers to Kenya in 2022 demonstrates the confidence and friendship that the US Government has with the Kenyan people and their government. In addressing community needs, Peace Corps Volunteers work hand-in-hand with their Kenyan Counterparts, engaging the community to identify their priority needs and possible interventions.
