Country Overview

Kenya is located in East Africa and noted for its scenic landscape and wildlife preserves. The country enjoys relatively high political and social stability. It’s economy is the largest in Central Africa and its capital, Nairobi, is a regional commercial hub. 

Nairobi also has two of the largest slums in Africa – Kibera and Kawangware – where most of Nairobi’s 60,000 street children live. Because poverty and lack of access to education are prevalent issues in Kenya, child labour is common and many girls are subject to prostitution.
