Kenyan Men Empowerment Network (KEMEN)
Kenyan Men Empowerment Network (KEMEN) is a closed group for Kenyans males living abroad in the diaspora. Kenyan Men United is the name that was adopted for the group. The group aims to create a forum where Kenyan men living in diaspora will address issues that affect them and find solutions that are applicable to solve them. It will also be a platform that will educate the society on how to meet the challenges one meets on their daily lives. The ability to generate, access, and use information has become a key factor in personal, social, and economic growth. That’s why this forum will expand global information the society requires the free flow of information; in reshaping our personal, education, and social activities.
The mission of the group is to bring the Kenyan men living in Diaspora together. The groupseeks to address the issues faced by the Kenyan men when they are away from home and also help in the celebrating and encouraging them.
Our vision is to create a network where all the members get to interact and know each other, share ideas and simply be each other brothers keeper. This will play an increasingly vital role in empowering individuals,communities to maximize the benefits of the information age shared.
Men the diaspora face various challenges and we hope the group will address these challenges through collaboration and mentorship.
The strategy is to ensure Kenyan men in the diaspora find a leaning shoulder and someone to guide them through in facing the various issues one faces when living in the diaspora. By traditional and societal measures of success, men (boy child)are slipping away. They are underrepresented in the higher education and have been disproportionately affected by the economic downturn.
