Act will continue to focus on capacity development- a core function of its development work, as well as strengthening partnerships with governments both at national and county level and with the private sector with a view of influencing policies and best practice to address development challenges in Kenya.
"The challenges and the changing global environment in which we operate calls for new ways of management and strong partnerships as alluded in the new plan.
