Why you need to get involved

The progress of a nation is not a task for a few individuals but for the entire nation

Kenya Markets Trust works to sustainably improve the lives of Kenyans by transforming its key market systems. We focus mainly on Agri-inputs, Livestock and Water. The reason KMT focuses on these sectors is because they have an impact on a huge part of Kenya’s population. Therefore any positive change within them affects the lives of millions of Kenyans. With the wealth of knowledge and resources available at KMT, learning about them and sharing can change the life of a Kenyan you know.

Ways you can get involved


We know that agriculture is the backbone of our economy. As a farmer, if your yield improves, you not only create a better livelihood for yourself and your family, your produce goes to improving our economy. Learn how you can improve your yield by following our work.

Members of the Public

We think of Kenya as a big family of over 50 million people. A considerable number of Kenyans directly rely on farming as a source of livelihood. Help get the word out to them by sharing contnet from our publications and following our work.

The Private Sector

For the stakeholders in agriculture, livestock and  water, use the publications to improve and rejuvenate your efforts. Follow our work and stay updated with everything KMT.


Partnerships help us get the resources necessary to make our work possible. Partner with KMT and help us further our cause. You can view case studies, learn about what we do, know the impact of our work and much more from our website.


Among the things we do is influencing policies and regulations that affect our focus areas. As a stakeholder in government, make Kenya a better place by sharing our work with other stakeholders and also the general public.


A Dawn of a New Chapter for Kenya Markets Trust

After years of successfully working together as partners with a shared mission of transforming sectors in East Africa, Gatsby Africa, Kenya Markets Trust and Msingi East Africa have decided to integrate and become one entity as of April 01, 2022.

The new integrated entity will be called Gatsby Africa – a philanthropic entity of Lord David Sainsbury and will operate across six sectors in East Africa – Commercial Forestry, Aquaculture, Textiles and Apparel, Livestock, Agricultural Inputs, and Water.

We believe that the ambition and vision of the new organisation, coupled with the breadth of our portfolio, puts us in a strong position to deliver a meaningful level of impact for millions of people in the East African region. It equally strengthens our ability to generate and share our learning with others.

Coming together allows us to leverage the strengths of the three organisations, brings efficiency to how we work, and ensures we have a greater impact in our work.

What does this mean for the work that we have been passionately championing over the years? There will be no changes to the focus and modalities of how we work or our shared commitments – our three existing programmes will continue to operate in the same way they have always done.

We will be launching the new integrated Gatsby Africa organisation on April 01, 2022. By mid-April, we will share with you a link to our new website and official social media handles. However, we will retain our current website for a minimum period of six months, so that our knowledge materials are available to you. We shall be moving these over to our new website so that nothing will be lost.

As an organisation, we are excited about the opportunities that this integration brings for our people, partners and the sectors we work in. We are humbled by the collaboration and good working relationship we have had with all our different stakeholders and look forward to continuing working with you in the new organisation.
