KEY created the foundation for THE FIRST national policy and framework for school libraries in Kenya

Between 2016 and 2018 we spearheaded a partnership between KEY, the Kenya Law Reform Commission, Kenya Library Association, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Culture, The Goethe Institute and NGOs in education. And, KEY took the primary responsibility in the analysis and drafting of Kenya’s first road map Policy and Guidelines for School Libraries for the group. These helped provide a foundation for Kenya’s first National Policy on Libraries (2022) and the Libraries of Kenya Bill (2022) that are currently undergoing public participation.
