ActionAid International Kenya’s, Global Platform Kenya is a training hub for youth empowerment and activism. We work with young people, organisations and movements fighting for social justice.

The Global Platform (GP) is a dynamic and inspiring environment where participants live and learn together, where they can think freely, develop their own ideas, and connect, discuss, and act on local, national, and global political issues.

ActionAid Global Platform Kenya works closely with the wider ActionAid International Federation to ensure link between strategic aims, programmatic themes, and synergy between activities at local, regional, and global levels.


We offer trainings that Empower and Connect People and Inspire them to Take Action

Together with movements, organizations, and individuals we promote the  agenda of progressive social, political, and economic change through trainings that empower people, inspire them to organize and act, and connect individuals, movements, and organizations from the grassroots to the global level. We are locally rooted and globally connected.

Global Platform Kenya works with other youth serving organizations to co-create Youth-Led spaces for building collective power.
