Kenya, officially the Republic of Kenya, is a country in Africa. Its capital and largest city is Nairobi. Kenya has a population of about 44 million people.
The capital, Nairobi is a regional commercial hub. Agriculture is a major employer; the country traditionally exports tea and coffee and has more recently begun to export fresh flowers to Europe.
Although Kenya is the biggest and most advanced economy in East and Central Africa, and has an affluent urban minority, Kenya is still struggling. It is estimated that 17.7% of Kenyans live on less than $1.25 a day.
Child labor is common in Kenya. Most working children are active in agriculture. The staple food for the majority of Kenyans is corn (Ugali), ground and pounded into various forms. In 1896 three Salvationists went to Kenya to work on the building of the new railway and started their witness in the railway camps. The first official meetings took place in Nairobi in 1921.
The Others Coordinator for Kenya East is Captain Mary Muindi.
There are five Others Production groups in Kenya: Makadara, Embu, Kasikeu, Kilome, and Dandora with more than 300 women who are directly involved in the production of Others products in Kenya. Many products are made from recycled materials such as plastic and paper.
Others has given the disadvantaged people hope, opportunities and means to achieve their own independent development. Many homes have a smile because of Others.
