The Client The African Leadership Network (ALN) is a community of the most dynamic and influential leaders working to create change in Africa and our community aims to contribute towards Africa’s prosperity by strengthening relationships between leaders to encourage collaboration.

The Challenge ALN’s vision is to be the pre-eminent community of dynamic and influential new generation leaders in Africa, and serve as an institutional platform for building relationships, forging substantive collaborations, and for mobilizing the collective influence of its members to build entrepreneurship, unlock transformative opportunities, and overcome challenges to building wealth in Africa. To realize this vision, they needed an influential, well-networked and effective COO to drive membership, develop partnerships, and drive funding across the continent.

The Results KCH worked closely with ALN to identify a candidate with exceptional communication and execution ability, as well as a passion for driving change within Africa. Rakhee was a Kenyan who had returned home after gaining consulting experience in South Africa and the UAE, bringing with her strong operational skills, carefully honed regional networks, and the energy and passion necessary to drive forward ALN’s vision.


“Kenyans Come Home takes the time to understand their clients’ needs and have a refreshingly analytical approach to placements…something I appreciated.”

Isaac Kwaku Fokuo, VP Strategic Relations, African Leadership Network

“Kenyans Come Home founder and CEO Farah has developed a recruitment framework like no other! It’s not simply about matching skills with a CV and hoping for the best outcome. KCH thoroughly understand what culture an organisation needs and the type of individual who is ideally suited so that turnover on new placements will be minimum. For those of you looking for a recruitment firm with a difference… this is it!”

Rakhee Mediratta, COO, African Leadership Network
