Nativities from Kenya

Kenya, located in East Africa, is home to 47 distinct ethnic groups. The largest of these groups are the Kikuyu, the Luyia and the Luo. Kenya borders the Indian Ocean in East Africa. With Lake Victoria to the west and coastal plains to the east, much of the country has a temperate climate. To the north are arid grasslands.

Jambo! is a traditional Kiswahili greeting. English and Kiswahili are Kenya’s official languages. Tropical fruits like pineapples, mangoes, oranges, bananas and papaya are abundantly available in Kenya. Family is important to Kenyans. In rural areas, multiple generations may share a single home. Kenya’s people are a diverse mix of ethnic groups and religions. Seventy-three percent of the population is Christian, six percent are Muslim and 20 percent practice traditional religions. For ordinary Kenyans, price increases and shortages of basic commodities, water and power have become normal and unemployment remains high.
