The Kenya chapter started meeting and organizing events in 2015, and was formalized as an IAF Chapter in early 2016. They have successfully hosted two of the recent Africa Facilitation Conferences - in Nairobi in October 2106 and Mombasa in October 2018. They have also held regular Facilitator Dialogue events, which have enabled many facilitators in Kenya to network, share and learn from each other.
Currently, there are over 20 members in Kenya, many based in Nairobi and others in the Coastal region near Mombasa who are also part of Pwani Association of Facilitators (PAF), who were the co-hosts of the 2018 Mombasa Conference.
The chapter is currently holding regular online meetings and welcomes members to participate in these. Please contact Julias Alego for more details (see contact below)
