CFK AFRICA'S COVID-19 RESPONSE

The communities we work with drive our efforts and inspire our work.

STORIES OF PROGRESS

1,400+ informal settlements house more than 50% of Kenya’s urban population.

In these crowded communities, residents struggle to maintain a healthy lifestyle due to lack of access to quality healthcare, proper nutrition, and poor sanitation, leaving residents susceptible to a variety of diseases.

Gender inequality, limited access to education, unemployment, drugs, and substance abuse further impede individual and community progress.

In some of the most densely populated areas of Africa, residents struggle with limited access to resources and live with an increased risk of disease.

Our Mission

CFK Africa improves public health and economic prosperity in informal settlements. We combine public service with responsible research to inform and assist participatory development in Kenya and other informal settlements globally.

Primary Healthcare

Providing quality, affordable care through a truly comprehensive approach to strengthen health systems and improve long-term health outcomes.

Education & Livelihoods

Offering educational and work readiness services to invest in young leaders and help them secure employment.

Girls Empowerment

Creating a space for girls to hone their mentorship and advocacy skills that allow them to grow and thrive.

Take Action.
