Greetings!
Koica Alumni Kenya Chapter(KAKC) is an association of Kenyan Public officials who have participated in training courses in the Republic of Korea through KOICA fellowship programs with the full support of the Korean government.

The association is aimed at maintaining the good relationship between the Kenyan and Korean governments , sharing the knowledge and experiences gained from the trainings, and supporting sustainable development goals with funding
from KOICA. Since the announcement of the first case of Covid-19 in Kenya in March 2020, KAKC has been committed to alleviating the effects of the virus in our country.

The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is ; be well informed about the disease, its causes, how it spreads, and the preventive measures.

Protect yourself and others from infection by; washing your hands or using an alcohol based hand sanitizer frequently, maintaining social distance, wearing a face mask while in crowded areas, and not touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

KAKC acknowledges the adverse effects that Covid-19 came with and with the help of (Korea International Cooperation Agency)KOICA, KAKC has been able to:

  1. Provide infrared thermometers to 5 counties’ hospitals ( Nandi, Kiambu, Kajiado and Vihiga) to help them in temperature checks while maintaining social distance.
  2. Acquire Handwashing facilities for the Lady Hope wellness institute in Kitisuru.

KAKC is also focused on supporting sustainable development goals and some of our 2020 projects have been;

  • Provision of catering equipment for the formation of a catering department at Muteithia polytechnic located in Nakuru county.
  • Donation of sewing machines to the Lady Hope Wellness Institute to help the cancer warriors in making a living so that they can be able to meet their day-to-day needs.

We appreciate the fact that much needs to be done and going forward, with the completion of our website, we will utilize it to involve our members in coming up with sustainable development proposals which will be supported based on our budgetary allocation and other relevant terms and conditions which will be communicated in due course.

This will be highly effective since the sustainable development projects proposals will be coming from different parts of the country and that will lead to inclusivity.

We would like to recognize and appreciate the support of the Kenyan government by providing a conducive working environment, KOICA Kenya office for facilitating our activities, the committee members for their commitment and all our members.
