Welcome to IconnectKenya

We are a social enterprise based in Kakuma Refugee Camp with the goal of empowering marginalized entrepreneurs to run digital, eco-friendly, and competitive businesses.

Who are we?

ICONNECTKENYA(ICOKE) is a social entreprise that works with diverse and marginalized communities to strengthen their structures by use of information, advocacy and media for economic growth, awareness and learning purposes.

Our Mission

To provide a digital platform that connects refugees and marginalized communities brands with the local and global market.

Our Vision

To improve the economic status of artisans, creatives, and designers by promoting self-reliance and social cohesion.

Our Slogan

Our slogan is rebrand, reposition and resell.


ICOKE is a women-led social enterprise that uses the power of social media platforms to enable brands to grow and generate more income. We work with marginalized communities and women owned brands to help amplify their voices and tell their individual story for identity through what they sell. Through us the brands access platforms where people can re-brand, connect and sell to their target market.

Statistics from UNHCR show that 68% of the communities living in Turkana are poor. 56% of the population’s households within these communities are headed by women.

Women and youth constitute the largest population living here next to children. These groups possess hands-on skills like dressmaking, basketry, crocheting, and beadwork. However, limiting factors that include low economic status, lack of marketing skills, and immediate access to marketing platforms hinder the growth of these communities. The women and youth end up not selling to wider markets and limit their abilities to meet high and competitive markets.

ICOKE strives to bridge this market gap by partnering together with these communities in an effort to uplift their economic and social standards. Some of the services we offer include;

Our Model


This is an e-commerce that sells Kakuma products. We are environmentally conscious and work to create apparels that promote reusing, recycling, and reducing ideology. The items made by refugee and host communities living in Kenya are made of plant-based fibers like cotton, reeds, and locally available items. Items made include reusable shopping bags, fashion apparel, soft furnishings, and uniforms.


This is where we nurture the talents of youth in Kakuma by content creation aimed at supporting Kenyan brands. We work with youths with skills that include; web development, social media management, graphic design, and digital media publications. Through this, we are creating jobs for youth and supporting brands to grow to the next level.

ICOKE Story Zetu
