Do You Know Carol?

Carol Nekesa

Nairobi, March 15th 2011-IPA Kenya would like to honor Carol Nekesa. Carol grew up as the daughter of teachers in Busia, a small town in Western Kenya. In 1996, Carol entered the research world when she began working as a data entry clerk for International Child Support (ICS), a Busia-based NGO. Carol proved her skill and leadership capacity quickly and was soon promoted to data manager. She helped to negotiate the transition of research projects between ICS and IPA in 2005, and was promoted to Program Manager at IPA in 2007.

After receiving her Bachelors degree in Commerce and playing a central role in the growth of IPA-Kenya’s research portfolio, Carol was promoted to Deputy Country Director in 2011. In her current position Carol is directly leading the work of IPA-Kenya’s 200-person office, and is an active participant in IPA’s global growth.

When she’s not playing this role, she is the busy wife and mother of three active young girls. Happy Women’s Day, Carol!
