Gaming For Kenya started in 2014 at Baraton University in Eldoret, where the gaming culture was visibly vibrant and has a strong community. We had a small team of dedicated individuals with a dream of making gaming a big spectacle in Kenya. We did some small events called LAN parties within the University with the support of companies such as Google.
In August 2015, Gaming For Kenya elevated its efforts to promote gaming when it moved its operations to Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. Our growing name made the team push efforts to give it a big name so that it gains recognition in the country. In 2016, We pushed the LAN parties initiative within the city by bringing gamers and gaming enthusiasts together to play with each other and connect socially on a more personal level.
We now have a very strong brand throughout the country with initiatives such as K.IN.G.S eSports to encourage video gaming on a professional and athletic level, SourceMachine for the latest updates in the video game industry, and the LAN parties for the casual type gaming events.
