Every Last Child Country Spotlight: Kenya

Save the Children is campaigning at an international and national level to achieve the greatest impact for children with the Every Last Child Campaign.

Kenya experiences greater inequality than any other country in East Africa. According to the world inequality statistics, Kenya was ranked 103 out of 169 countries making it the 66th most unequal country in the world. This inequality has its roots in the country’s history, economics and social organization, with the net result being lack of access to essential services by the affected communities, with children bearing the greatest burden. Noteworthy, no other regions of the country are worst hit by manifestations of inequality like the urban slums and the Arid and Semi Arid Lands (ASALs).
