Why World Vision is in Kenya

Kenya has endured a hunger crisis and prolonged droughts that are affecting the well-being and livelihoods of families across the country.

Millions of vulnerable communities are in need of humanitarian assistance. Food insecurity is a primary concern for many Kenyan families, and people lack access to clean water. Thousands of children under the age of 5 and people living with disability are malnourished.

In response to the hunger crisis in Kenya, World Vision has equipped communities with cash vouchers, food distribution, water trucking, and health and nutrition programs. We’ve also supported regreening projects to nurture food production and help build resiliency against weather shocks. In 2022, approximately 3 million people — including 2.2 million children — were impacted by the support of World Vision and our partners.

We never give up on people

World Vision child sponsorship looks at all the things that prevent children from surviving and thriving in their community, and then works with that community to bring all the pieces of the puzzle together to build a better life for all children. For sponsors, it’s a personal way to show God’s love to a child in need in a life-changing way.
