Concern Worldwide has been helping people to come together and solve problems in their local communities.

The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is “connecting girls, inspiring futures.” Lillian and Elizabeth, two school girls in Nairobi, gave me an insight into what this means.


This is Concern Worldwide's 2012 programme plan for Kenya. The following is an excerpt from the document, which can be downloaded below.

The east Africa food crisis is leaving millions of people in Nairobi’s slums in urgent need of help. Concern Worldwide is there, but your support is urgently needed. 

This year, east Africa was struck by the worst drought in 60 years. Even before this, it was tough to survive in Nairobi’s polluted and overcrowded slums. But now, families are living on the edge. The drought and food crisis has been spreading silently to the slums of Nairobi and other cities in east Africa and it is now at emergency levels.

Despite being located in the centre of a drought area in Kenya, Moyale has been much less affected by the emergency than its neighbouring villages. This is thanks to the work Concern has been doing there since 2010.
