    Infrastructure Support : With the objective of increasing access to basic education by improving the transition rate of learners from primary to secondary level, the Government has funded the upgrade of facilities in secondary schools so as to accommodate more students in an enabling learning environment.
    Specifically, the Government has given two select schools in each county Ksh. 25 million that has been used to expand existing infrastructure to National school standards. Some of the projects funded schools have undertaken include addition of more classrooms, building of new laboratories, dormitories, dining/multi purpose halls, among other initiatives.
    This has seen the enrolment to national schools rise from a low of 4,600 a few years ago to 24,795 in 103 schools in 2016.

  • Food Security

    Fertiliser Subsidy : The Government of Kenya continues to support Kenya’s small scale farmers who have continued to access fertilizer at government subsidized prices to lower their cost of production and improve their earnings.
    Since 2013, an additional 515,200 MT of subsidised fertiliser has been procured and distributed to an additional 1.07 million small scale farmers. This has seen the number of small scale farmers covered increase from 430,000 in 2013 to 1.5 in 2017. The price of Subsidised fertiliser has reduced from KSh.2,500 per 50kg bag to KSh.1,800 per 50kg bag.

    Livestock Insurance : The Kenya Livestock Insurance Program (KLIP) was introduced in October 2015, the first government livestock insurance program in Africa. KLIP is an index based insurance which utilises satellite technology to monitor and measure the state of vegetation cover (pasture) available to livestock, particularly looking for the effects of drought, with payouts being made based on the index data when drought becomes particularly severe and the livestock’s health are at risk. The programme, targeting 14 Arid and Semi Arid Lands (ASAL) counties, covers pastoralists from losses owing to adverse weather conditions. The 14 ASAL Counties are Turkana, Wajir, Marsabit, Isiolo, Mandera, Tana River, Garissa, Baringo, Samburu, West Pokot, Kajiado, Narok, Laikipia, and Lamu Counties.

  • Security

    Equipment : As the National Police Service has grown in numbers, the government has also invested billions to provide the service with modern equipment to support its operations in a dynamic environment. Mobility has been greatly enhanced for police and administrators across the country with the acquisition of 3,672 vehicles for the NPS, a 177% increase over the 2013 levels. An additional 492 vehicles have been acquired for the National Administration Police representing a 48% increase.

    Police Recruitment : In 2013, Kenya had 83,165 police officers in service giving Kenya a police to civilian ratio of 1:505, which was not in line with the UN recommended ratio of 1:450.
    The Government has recruited, trained and deployed an additional 36,000 police officers over the last four years, taking the number of officers to 119,165 and in the process exceeding the recommended United Nations ratio of police to civilians. Kenya currently boasts one policeman for every 380 civilians (1:380), a great achievement over such a short period of time.

    Police Housing : The government has embarked on construction of new houses for the National Police and the Prisons Service. Currently, there are 1,850 housing units under construction using Industrial Building Systems (IBS). This building technology (IBS) enables quick construction of multi-storied houses and has greatly contributed to their increase over the last 4 years.
    The project aims to alleviate the housing shortage for the National Police Service and to improve the morale and welfare of officers. As a result of the consolidated housing units, it has made it easier to deploy police in cases of emergency as well as in the day to day operations.

  • Energy

    New Power Generation : he Government has implemented power generation and transmission projects to ensure quality and affordable electricity is made available to all sectors of the economy and households. As at April 2017, the Government has increased power production by 696 MW from 1,765 MW in 2013 to 2,461 MW. In the same period, the government decommissioned over 130 MW of expensive emergency diesel power, leaving a total of 2,333 MW of installed capacity. This is a 32% increase in power generation, of which, well over half is attributed to the increase in renewable energy production.

    Last Mile Connectivity : In 2013, a majority of Kenyans were not connected to power. The Government embarked on an aggressive last mile connectivity campaign to accelerate connectivity of households to electric power with the aim of achieving universal access to electricity in the country.
    This campaign has seen the number of households connected to electricity increase from 2.3 million households (12.8M Kenyans) in 2013 to 5.95 million households (33M Kenyans) in 2017. This is a 144% increase that has seen 20.2 million Kenyans benefit from electricity access in 4 years compared to 12.8 million Kenyans over the previous 50 years. Kenya currently stands at 65% access to electricity up from 27% in 2013 with the aim of having universal access to electricity by 2022.

    Street Lighting : The national street lighting programme is an initiative by the National Government to light up all county headquarters and major towns to support a 24-hour economy. Currently, all 47 county headquarters as well as 36 other major towns from Marsabit to Lamu, Bondo to Garissa have functioning street lighting installed.
    More towns are earmarked to be lit up under the second phase of the program. Installation of public lighting masts has also been done in densely populated areas alongside the street lighting project.

    School Power Connectivity : Since independence, the number of public primary schools connected to electricity was 8,200 representing 35% of all public primary schools as of 2013. The Government embarked on a programme to connect all public schools to electricity.
