JET Programme

In 2007 Japan invited Kenya to join the JET Programme, which enable local authorities (prefectures, designated cities and other municipalities) to employ young Kenyan men and women for the purpose of improving their foreign language education as well as promoting international exchange at the local level. By teaching English at schools and assisting with international exchange activities organized by local authorities in Japan, Kenya's young people are engaging at different levels with local residents and thus increasing cross cultural understanding whilst contributing to internalization efforts within Japan.
