Kenya is a land of variety. The urban centers of Nairobi, Kisumu, and Mombasa contrast well with some of the world's most magnificent parks, mountain ranges, and ancient cities. It is also a country where you can see the vast contrast between both wealth and poverty.
The challenges in Kenya are significant. In 2020, 3.5 million Kenyans were living on less than $1.90 a day. Child labor and bribery are major cultural issues. Even though there have been major advances in the health sector, a large portion of the population is still without access to clean water.
Kenya is the economic and transport hub of East Africa. Agriculture remains the backbone of the Kenyan economy, contributing 25% of the GDP. About 80% of Kenya's population of roughly 42 million work at least part-time in the agricultural sector.
