CARE commenced its humanitarian program in Kenya in 1968. Since then we have built a substantial development and humanitarian program, targeting around one million people in Kenya per year.
We currently carry out major programs in refugee assistance, health, water and sanitation, financial inclusion, adaptation to climate change, disaster risk reduction, agricultural value chains and humanitarian and emergency response. CARE is a lead partner of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) and World Food Programme (WFP), for water and hygiene, food distribution and formal education in the Dadaab refugee camps, near the Kenya-Somalia border. As of December 31, 2013, the refugee population in Dadaab was 408,283 refugees. CARE is also lead partner of the Global Fund in Kenya and partners with CDC for a major health program.

We also have projects in central and rift valley counties around financial inclusion and agricultural value chains. We currently work in 17 counties directly, and in 23 counties indirectly through Global Fund partners.
