Concern Kenya, which is part of Belfast based charity Concern International, hosted their very own St Patrick’s Day celebration this week in Nairobi.
Concern has worked in Kenya since 2002, currently working in mainly rural Marsabit County in the north of Kenya, and in the informal settlements or slums of Nairobi.
While originally urban-based, their work in Kenya has expanded into a multi-sectoral programme focusing on urban and rural livelihoods, primary education, water and sanitation health and nutrition and governance 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 the promotion of community empowerment, advocacy and governance initiatives.
