The support ranged from helping others shop for their groceries during the lockdown, sharing vital information about the pandemic from health authorities and providing financial support to local businesses.

68 percent of Kenyans surveyed also confirmed having received emotional support from groups during the pandemic, and as many as 75 percent of those surveyed said they had given emotional support to others.

88 percent confirmed that the most important group they are part of at the moment operates online and they are willing to continue supporting and engaging with their groups in future.

Similarly, 89% of the respondents also said they appreciate the importance of digital tools in helping their communities thrive during the pandemic.
