From our regional office in Nairobi, Kenya, RedR UK is working to enable humanitarian aid workers, government employees and community members to respond to emergencies, mitigate against disasters, and save and improve lives.

The RedR UK Sub-Saharan Africa Regional Office team has been operating from Nairobi since 2011, providing capacity-building and technical expertise for humanitarian actors in Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Chad, Madagascar, Somalia, Ethiopia, the Central African Republic (CAR), Rwanda, Senegal, and South Sudan.  

Our programme in the region is in response to the need for local and relevant capacity-building expertise in a context of both acute and prolonged humanitarian crises. We offer both open courses and tailor-made solutions to cater to your particular needs.
