Founded in 2012, the face of Kenya project has become a leading community forum bringing community cohesion to a polarised Kenyan diaspora. The project empowers the philanthropic nature of the community through the youth who fundraise for their charity of choice. The dedication to long term partnerships that will enable progressive branding of the image of Kenya abroad and Kenyan products reaching new markets is our driving force. The goal is to create Kenyan ambassadors that positively portrays Kenya abroad but also a united diaspora that supports our homeland.
Our goal is to build, connect, and enable the youths in the Diaspora and the community to prosper and live the Kenyan Dream, in UK or in Kenya or anywhere their aspiration might lead them.
Face of Kenya UK will be the official network representing interests and aspirations of the Kenyan youth in the UK. To show change, it will need certain commitments and life choices from Kenyans and friends of Kenya determined to carry on this will to make Kenya better. Diaspora Kenyans need to reach influential positions in the society, in UK and in Kenya.
