Migration is a truly global phenomenon, with movements both within nations and across international borders. Internationally, Kenya is a regional hub for irregular migration as a country of destination, a country of transit and also as a country of origin. Most migrants in Kenya follow the routes towards South Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, West Africa, Europe and North America.

Kenya is a major source of migrant workers in various professions around the world and has been ranked 3rd in Africa in diaspora remittance inflows. Remittance inflows into Kenya jumped by nearly 11% in 2020 to $3.09 billion. However, the Kenyan labour migration phenomenon is not without challenges. Contractual migrants comprise a vulnerable population such as Domestic Workers, Security Guards, Cleaners etc. that experience a range of social and economic issues. Local communities need to be better capacitated on how to make informed decisions about working abroad and how to harness the skills and resources brought by labour migration towards personal and local development.
