uKAMilifu is a Swahili word that means complete/wholeness. It is an ideology that speaks to the creation of holistic solutions together.

uKAMilifu is the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) arm of Kenya Association of Manufacturers. It houses KAM’s social impact efforts and initiatives, that bolster its mandate as the credible voice of industry.

Specifically, it is an initiative to demonstrate KAM’s wider role in the country’s goal to alleviate poverty and bridge inequality, reach out to marginalized youth groups and children, that have no social currency despite their critical role in realizing Kenya’s economic goals.

Part of uKAMilifu looks at amplifying human impact stories in line with KAM’s mandate.
