Who we are

UoN Foundation

Partner with us

Kenya continues to position itself as a global leader in research and innovation. In 2021, the Global Innovation Index positioned Kenya as second to South Africa in Sub-Sahara. Further the Covid 19 pandemic has demonstrated the need to nurture new ideas in order to support society’s growth as well as boost capacity to overcome pandemics. As such the UoN foundation has been established to support Kenyan researchers undertake more ground breaking research and innovation.

Education advancement

Time had come for the University of Nairobi to spearhead institutions of higher education in Kenya to lobby partners in advanced education to institutionalize sustainability of higher education institutions; it was time to “Endow African Universities” thereby moderating cost of higher education and in turn ensuring affordability for the sake of the greater African populace who are financially challenged.
