Innovation in Government in Kenya

While it comes to no surprise to the volunteers and partners of Kilifi Kids, technology is sweeping Kenya, as recently documented by McKinsey in their most recently Quarterly publication. As noted in the article, greater efforts are being made by the government to increase transparency and push for an open-data plan to improve the country’s long-term economic prospects for not only Kenyan but African children.

In the article, there is mention of a low-tech incubator called iHub in Nairobi. Our team, with Michael and Erik, visited iHub in their trip last summer (see pictures below) to meet some of the leaders of that organization and learn firsthand of the work their doing.

We’re excited to see more news becoming available of the strides being made in Kenya.
