The Cabinet on 28th February has approved the granting of Host Country Status to Plan International. This was announced in a cabinet memo after the cabinet meeting chaired by President William Ruto at Statehouse Nairobi.
“IN RECOGNITION OF the improved business environment, and in affirmation of our place of esteem as a top destination for regional and continental offices, Cabinet approved the granting of Host Country Status to Plan International, as it seeks to operationalize its global headquarters in Kenya.” read the cabinet memo.
Plan International is an internationally acclaimed not-for-profit humanitarian and development organization that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. Established in 1937, Plan International has an active presence in 75 countries across the world. The grant of approval by Cabinet means that Plan International can now move its global headquarters from London, UK to Nairobi, Kenya.
This move is a significant boost to Kenya’s status as a leading investment and economic hub, and comes hot on the heels of J.P. Morgan, a leading global financial conglomerate, choosing to establish their regional headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya.
