Kenyan People: Kenya’s cultural diversity and uniqueness weaves a rich human tapestry and makes Kenya a regional melting pot. While each of the nation’s indigenous communities has its own unique language, practices, staple food, dress, dance and music, the people of Kenya are all distinctly and wonderfully Kenyan.
People of Kenya – Overview
Kenya is a popular destination for people from all over the world looking for a peaceful, natural and weather friendly place to settle. Wild and unadulterated yet modern and sophisticated, Kenya is now home to fiercely patriotic second and third generation Europeans, Americans and Asians who continue to contribute in the socio-economic development of the country. The Kenyan people are warm, hospitable and celebrated for their boundless generosity. Their resilience and hard working nature has greatly contributed to the country’s development.
There is an abundance of skill and talent that continues to attracte investors and multinationals into Kenya. This was augmented by the introduction of free Primary education in 2002 and later secondary education, which doubled admissions across the country. There are numerous private and public Universities nationwide, hence Kenya’s position as the nation with the highest literacy level in the region. The nation has a youthful population, with approximately 70% of the total population in their youth. This further provides for a dynamic, flexible and competitive labor market.
