The DAAD representation in the Kenyan capital Nairobi started as a small adjunct office in September 1973. By 1979, the small office had grown into a fully-fledged DAAD Regional Office for Africa providing information about DAAD’s full range of academic programmes.

Today, the Nairobi Office with its ten staff members offers consultation on study and research opportunities and funding possibilities for individual scholars in Germany and the East Africa region, for university collaboration between German and East African universities and research institutes, and for capacity building for university staff members at East African universities.

The DAAD Nairobi branch office is located in the capital’s Upper Hill area, next to Milimani Commercial Court on Upper Hill Close. Our visiting hours are Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9 am and 12 noon where visitors can just pass by without an appointment and will be assisted. Otherwise, we can arrange meetings individually. However, due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, we are only offering virtual visiting hours at the moment (on Thurdsdays, 10 am -11am), as well as regular web seminars to inform you more about the DAAD.
