The Jassa Centre was founded in 2016, in Nairobi, Kenya with the sole objective to improve healthcare and higher education services in resource-limited areas through the power of research, networks, and partnerships. Today, The Jassa Centre is a think tank/research foundation that aims to harness the power of research, networks, and partnerships to build stronger healthcare and academic systems in resource-limited areas. We work with institutions of higher learning and non-profit institutions to achieve this goal. Our dedicated team identifies the gaps and then mobilizes partners and other resources to fill the gaps.
The Jassa Centre’s philosophy rides on the premise that so many communities could solve most of their problems through partnerships with institutions that offer either free or cost-effective services related to the community’s needs. When The Jassa Centre “adopts” a community, it works together with community/institutional leaders to get in partners that can solve some of the most pressing health and higher education needs of that community.
