Kenya is a country with enormous potential. It is an important hub in East Africa and one of the continent's ten largest economies. Having recently graduated beyond low-income country status, the government is focused on its Vision 2030 which aims to make Kenya one of world’s leading middle-income countries.
To make this vision a reality the government needs to overcome a number of challenges. With over 20 million Kenyans still living below the poverty line, a number of security threats and a population eager to see progress on job creation and public services, there are considerable demands on the government to deliver for its people.
AGI funds support to President Kenyatta and his team to enhance a number of critical centre-of-government functions. This support is putting in place systems and structures needed to monitor and drive progress on priority infrastructure and development projects including over 5000MW of electricity generation projects and a new railway linking Nairobi and Mombasa, and are helping the government to communicate effectively what progress is being made and what Kenyans can hold their government to account for delivering.
