This regional network will be of interest to members living or working in Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Yemen, Eritrea, Djibouti, and Sudan. As Nairobi is a regional base for many international agencies and a hub for journeys into and out of these countries we have created a regional online club to reflect this connection.
The Kenyan based alumni network arranges a get-together at least once a year to catch up and discuss what we can do to support IDS throughout the following year. This usually happens in February so we can celebrate with any new alumni their recent graduation and invite prospective students to join us. All IDS alumni who are in the region are welcome to join us.
Last year the highlight was holding an IDS Alumni Roundtable in Nairobi
to celebrate IDS’s 50th
anniversary. The IDS alumni office provided support for us to organise and hold a seminar about Sustainable Development Goals and Kenya.
