Welcome to our Programmes

UNESCO is known as the "intellectual" agency of the United Nations. Every day, UNESCO adds value to the intellectual community in the range of ways, by functioning as:

  • A laboratory of ideas
  • A standard setter;
  • A catalyst for international cooperation;
  • A clearing house;
  • A capacity builder for Member States.

The Kenya National Commission for UNESCO therefore has five (5) core programmes namely: Education, Natural Sciences, Social and Human Sciences, Culture, and Communication and Information.
