If you have lived or worked in Kenya, are a Kenya resident or student visiting the UK, or would simply like to know more about one of Africa’s most beautiful countries, the Kenya Society offers a stimulating environment for you to increase your knowledge and keep in touch.

Membership benefits

  • Social events: Social and fundraising events throughout the year, including the High Commissioner’s Summer Garden Party and our Annual Lunch.
  • Newsletter: Receive our online newsletter Habari to keep  up-to-date with the Society’s activities and news from Kenya.
  • Online forums: Connect with members online through Facebook and Twitter.
  • Bring a guest: Members are welcome to bring guests to our free events for a  £5 token fee (other than the Summer Garden Party, which is £20). Of course, guests are welcome to join on the spot, obviating the need to pay the fee!
