Who we Are
Kenya Institute Of Development Studies Is A Middle Level Training Institution Founded On Strong Belief Of Capacity Through Imparting Practice Knowledge And Skills To Spur Economic And Social Growth. The Institution Evolved From Social Economic Consult, A Consultancy That Has Been Carrying Out Research On Developing Issues.
The Idea Of Setting Up A Training Center Came Up After Research Revealed A Huge Gap On Middle Level Development Agents. A Huge Number Of Qualified Students Are Locked Out Of The Institutions Of Higher Learning Due To Limited Facilities. K.I.D.S. was started to create opportunities for these students.

It Was Felt That There Was A Need To Set Up A Middle Level Training Institution To Produce A Skilled Workforce In Development Ventures. This Idea Gave Birth To Kenya Institute Of Development Studies. Within The First Year Of Operations KIDS Have Cut Its Niche As A Center Of Excellence Due To Quality Training And Superior Administration. We Have Managed To Build Trust Among Government And Other Stake Holders Who Have Officially Recognized Our Work. This Confidence Within Has Made The Institute Attract Students From The Entire Region.
