Communicating with the world.
For diversity, understanding and trust.

We connect people all over the world. As a cultural institution of the Federal Republic of Germany, we promote cultural exchange, education and societal discourse in an international context, and support the teaching and learning of the German language. Together with our partners, we focus on global opportunities and challenges, bringing different perspectives into a dialogue based on trust. We regard the ability to listen and to reflect as the key to understanding. We are bound by principles of transparency, diversity and sustainability. These principles characterise our services and our way of working.



We promote the study of German abroad and encourage international cultural exchange.

You can contact staff of the Goethe-Institut Kenya directly.

In Kenya we are represented by the Goethe-Institut in Nairobi, and we cooperate with two language centres in Mombasa.

The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with a global reach.
