GOAL's Work in Kenya
Thirty years later, GOAL Kenya is actively continuing our work to improve the lives of the most vulnerable.
Currently, the GOAL Kenya programme has offices in two locations, Nairobi and Marsabit.
The Nairobi programme comprises of integrated projects that target extremely vulnerable children, young people and marginalised populations living in Nairobi’s slums.
GOAL’s programme in Marsabit responds to the drought crisis that regularly affects communities living in northern Kenya’s arid lands. This is accomplished by increasing access to clean water and sanitation facilities and encouraging changes in hygienic behaviour.
Issues of child protection, gender, environment, HIV and AIDS and livelihoods are also integrated into GOAL’s programmes in Kenya. The aim is to empower individuals and communities to access their rights, fulfil their potential and initiate real and sustainable change.
GOAL also delivers emergency preparedness and response in Kenya. In recent years, we responded to the post-election violence of 2007 / 2008 by building houses for displaced families in the Nakuru valley. We also supported Somali refugees in Dadaab camp, north-western Kenya, by providing emergency shelter and constructing sanitation facilities.
