This guide highlights successful early
childhood programs implemented by
Kenyan companies, illustrating how
these policies can be put into practice.
Naturally, the diversity of company
size, industry, location, and employee
composition means that policies and
programs cannot be one-size-fits-all.
No company can do everything, but
the wide range of possibilities means
that every company can do something to support healthy early childhood
development. This guide is intended to
assist with designing and implementing
internal family-friendly policies, as well
as community outreach and corporate
social responsibility projects, aimed at
improving and safeguarding children’s
early childhood development for all
children in Kenya. While the focus is on
Kenya, many of the lessons are universal.

There are many diverse ways for
companies large and small to support
Kenya’s youngest children. What’s the
best approach for your company?
