The Government of Kenya recognizes the immense potential of the Diaspora community in advancing the Bottom-Up Economic Transformative Agenda (BETA). The invaluable resources, both tangible and intangible held by the Diaspora represents a unique opportunity to drive Kenya's sustainable development.

To tap into the skills, talent, experience, and knowledge, the State Department is proposing to establish a Kenya-Diaspora Skills Transfer Program. The program aims to harness the skills, talent, experience, knowledge of the Kenyan Diaspora to make an impact on Kenya's economic, Social, and Political development. Some of the identified sectors for the transfer program include; ICT and Financial Technology (Fintech), Medical Technology, Agriculture and Food Security, Blue Economy and the Creative Economy.

The Kenya -Diaspora Skills Transfer Program will give a platform for Kenyans based abroad to be consulted on various development policies and offer their unique skills, perspectives and experiences on a needs basis to critical areas of the Kenyan economy that have had shortfalls in the above-mentioned sectors.
The State Department plans to bridge the interested Kenyan diaspora to local stakeholders like MDAs, County Governments, Community Based organizations through initiatives like Virtual Training and Mentorship Programs, On-site Workshops and Seminars , Collaborative Research Projects, Internship and Exchange Programs, Business Incubation and Investment Support, short—term placement opportunities in Kenya, and CSR programs.

The Kenyans in Diaspora who wish to express their interest to the Skills Transfer Program are encouraged to register here.
