Kenya’s innovative business ideas in financial services, telecoms, digital and renewable energy have helped to make it a fast-growing economy.
Those business ideas have improved the lives of millions in Kenya and across east Africa.
But there is still much poverty and growing inequality in Kenya, aggravated by political and security shocks as well as climate-related problems The risk of radicalisation, especially in the north, and regional insecurity promote instability.
ASI has supported Kenya’s role as a regional leader, especially by developing regional integration and a better trading environment, as well as strengthening the social fabric of Kenya through projects promoting access to employment and education. We have also worked on the mining industry and prospects for geothermal.
