About Kenya

  • Kenya is a country in Eastern Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean, between Somalia and Tanzania.
  • It has a population of approximately 44 million people.
  • Kenya’s natural beauty and wildlife draws many tourists each year.
  • In the midst of this beauty, many of Kenya's residents live in poverty with few opportunities for income and over the past several years, violence and a heavy decline in tourism have limited those opportunities even more.
