The Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) is committed to uplifting the standards of living of the communities within the Coastal region and other areas where it operates. This commitment is entrenched in and supported by our Corporate Social Investment (CSI) Policy. The Authority has invested enormously in improving education and health facilities in each of the Coastal Counties aimed at assisting and developing the communities since 2000 when the Authority drew a more structured programme of reaching out to the communities to address specific socio-economic needs.
It is through this initiative that KPA as a responsible corporate entity continues to positively impact on communities by lessening their burdens through provision of health and education facilities. KPA’s Corporate Social Investment Policy is rooted in the organisation’s values, guided by international standards and best practices, and driven by its aspiration for excellence in the overall performance of the business.
Through the efforts of each of the employees, KPA is determined to take pride in being responsible, respected, and welcomed in every place where it has its presence. Thus, the Authority allocates two percent of its profits to needy causes. Education and health projects receive about 65 percent of this funding with the remainder earmarked for charities, disaster, relief funds and other worthy causes.
