The Bahá’í community in Kenya is known for its work in promoting social and economic development activities such as building skills in weaving and health care.

A Bahá’í inspired organization called “The Livelihood Foundation” carries out activities related to health care and education. Through this project, a health centre with maternity wards has been constructed and is operational. The Foundation also promotes education on AIDS for local people.
