The Inades-Formation office in Kenya was established in early 1978.

On June 5, 1978, it was incorporated as a non-profit corporation for rural development through distance education.

In December 1993, the Inades Formation office in Kenya was registered as a non-governmental organization under the NGO Coordination Act, with the mandate to work in Kenya for social and economic development. It starts its activities in Makueni and in the districts of Machakos with expansion projects in the district of Kitui. Later in 2009, it spreads its wings in the Kitui district, particularly in Matinyani, in the Kauma sub-site.

In 2012, the organization changed its name to Inades-Formation Kenya (IFK) after acquiring National Association (NA) status as a member of the Inades-Formation network. The organization joined the Kenya NGO Coordinating Council in April 2012.

Inades-Formation Kenya works for the economic and social development of populations with particular emphasis on their free and responsible participation in the transformation of their societies. Its working approach is “Stimulation and Support of Development Alternatives at the service of the Common Good (SAADEV).
