Kenya

Kenya, officially the Republic of Kenya, is a country in Africa and a founding member of the East African Community (EAC). Its capital and largest city is Nairobi. Kenya has a warm and humid tropical climate on its Indian Ocean coastline. The climate is cooler in the savannah grasslands around the capital city, Nairobi, and especially closer to Mount Kenya, which has snow permanently on its peaks. The economy of Kenya is the largest by GDP in East and Central Africa. 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. The service industry is also a major economic driver.

Kenya has a reasonably good education quality, ranking 62nd in the world but it ranks 120th for primary education enrollment, with 84% of children enrolled.  The quality of secondary education is ranked highly at 28th but 108th in Secondary education enrollment rate, with 60% enrolled.

Kenya’s health care system is structured in a step-wise manner so that complicated cases are referred to a higher level. Gaps in the system are filled by private and church run units. HIV is quite prevalent with 5.4% of the adult population affected.

 

There is very limited internet access in Kenya. 26% of the population are internet users. Only 26 of every 100 Kenyans have a Mobile-broadband Subscription, ranking it 108th in the world. Kenya is ranked 81st for internet access in schools, and 100th for ICT use.
