Our work in Kenya

Introduction

Humentum works frequently in Kenya, holding many workshops a year in Nairobi, across compliance and risk, financial management, program management and HR & Learning topics. We work on a local level, developing and maintaining relationships with NGOs and member organizations, delivering learning and client services within the region. In addition to facilitating learning, we also coordinate an ongoing program of networking events. Our mission for Kenya is to ensure that any social sector organization or practitioner in the region can conveniently access Humentum’s services. 

Humentum has three staff and several associate consultants based in Kenya and regularly runs training and networking events. See below for an up to date list of upcoming workshops and events, and we hope to see you soon on an Humentum associated event.

Nairobi Week 2018: Hackathon action

A short "snippet" video from one of the workshop sessions in Nairobi

Blog post

In this blog Caitlin Holland describes attending a week of trainings in Nairobi, and her experience "On the Road with Humentum in Nairobi, Kenya":

"The lineup of events for Nairobi Week was aggressive, and I filled my personal schedule: content gathering and interviews with a photographer and videographer, liaising with a Devex reporter covering our USAID Proposal Development course, and attending all the evening and additional learning events I could, like our learning hackathon, senior leaders' dinner, member roundtable, and reception.

"Despite it being the rainy season and large flying termites spawning out of the ground after the daily downpours, I had an incredible time learning more about the vibrant development and learning community in Nairobi. Please take a moment to re-read that sentence. Anyone who knows me knows what a big deal that statement is. I don’t do insects, especially when they gather and swarm like the birds in Alfred Hitchcock’s aptly named 1963 movie “The Birds.”

"But even outdoor threats couldn’t diminish the creative and enthusiastic vibe that encompassed the week and radiated from our participants and my fellow colleagues. What was so special about it? The proximity of giraffes and baby elephants doesn’t hurt, nor does the availability of Tusker cider, but what impressed me most about Nairobi was its people and the impressive amount of passion and expertise behind exactly what we do at Humentum: learning and capacity building for organizations working for social good."
