WELCOME TO 4-K CLUBS KENYA

The 4-K Club programme in Kenya was founded in 1962 after a local leaders’ visit to the USA where they were exposed to various agricultural programmes including the 4-H.
The Kenyan leaders decided to adopt the 4-H concept and principles which were customized to 4-K Club for ownership and identity. The guiding principle is to empower the youth with Agricultural and life skills which will contribute towards better nutrition, health and higher standards of living.

In Kenya, currently, there are about 1,250 registered 4-K Clubs found in primary schools with an estimated membership of over 70,000 countrywide.

In the wake of Competency Based Curriculum (CBC), it is envisaged that the 4-K Clubs will provide a holistic approach of Positive Youth Development (PYD) at home, school and the community by building on the strength of the youth as active agents to community development.
