The Governance is the policymaking organ while the Management implements the policies and decisions of the Governance both at Headquarter and Branch levels. We work with our communities, volunteers and partners to ensure we prepare for and respond to our humanitarian and development needs.
At the highest level of the Kenya Red Cross Society, there is the National Council - the supreme organ of the Society led by a Governor, who is deputised by 1st and 2nd Deputy Governors.
The Council consists of elected members and four representatives from each Region. The Council elects the National Executive Committee (NEC), which is mandated to provide supervision to the management. The NEC appoints the Secretary General who directs the Secretariat staff, which in turn assists the Branches to develop their humanitarian programmes.
