Kenya Agency for Development of Enterprise and Technology (KADET) was started in 2000 by World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and impoverished communities worldwide. World Vision began working in Kenya in 1973. By the early 1980s their programs included agriculture, nutrition, education, water projects, medicine and flood relief. World Vision’s goal is to deliver access to financial services and economic development throughout Kenya, particularly the rural areas where half of the country’s population resides.
