In Kenya, Oxfam works with others to alleviate poverty and inequality. We work with the most vulnerable communities in the dry and remote northern regions, and in the impoverished slums of the capital, Nairobi.
In Kenya, the highest poverty levels are in the northern pastoralist districts - in some areas 95% of people fall below the poverty line.
Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty.
