Worldwide, there are about 360,000 people going by the name of Quakers, in all four corners of the world. The big concentrations outside Britain are in Canada, Bolivia, Mexico, the United States of America, and Kenya. There are also Quakers in many countries in Europe including Belgium, France, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, and Russia, and also in India, Japan, South Africa, Palestine, Australia, and Aotearoa New Zealand. Although Quakers started off in Britain, by far the majority are actually now in Kenya.
