Daring Abroad Investment Forums are happening at a time when diaspora remittances have grown to become the leading foreign exchange earner to Kenya. Between October 2022 and September 2023, total remittances realized were USD 4.05 million up from USD 3.57 million in the year ending September 2021. This translates to a record 14% in just three years post the Covid-19 pandemic. Further analysis of trends in remittances inflow into the country indicate steady growth over the past two decades and high prospects of continued growth in the future. Chams Media is informed by this study to work with the private sector and government in showcasing Kenya's investment profile and connecting the diaspora with various viable and credible investment projects through the Daring Abroad brand. Our past success has helped the diaspora realize value in their remittances towards various sectors in the Kenyan economy including real estate, construction, insurance, banking, cooperative movement, motor, education and agriculture among others thanks to meaningful partnerships that we have developed with private sector players in the mentioned sectors.
