The OWSD Kenya National Chapter was established in September 2018. Its primary focus is on mentorship and encouragement of girls and women in science and technology. It is also involved in partnerships with the private sector, networking and capacity-building of members through regular meetings and activities, including the organization of OWSD regional conferences. The National Chapter is hosted at icipe, the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology, in Nairobi. www.owsdkenya.org.
