Concern Worldwide

Non-profit, social workCompany size: 500-1000 people

Concern has worked in Kenya since 2002. We currently work in rural Marsabit County in the north of Kenya, and in the informal settlements or slums of Nairobi. While originally urban-based, our work in Kenya has now expanded into a multi-sectoral programme focusing on urban and rural livelihoods, primary education, HIV and AIDS, water and sanitation, and health and nutrition in both Nairobi and Marsabit. In partnership with local organisations, Concern also responds to a number of emergencies in Kenya resulting from floods, drought and violence. All of our work is underpinned by community empowerment, advocacy and governance initiatives.
