About

KWEA (Kwale Welfare and Education Association), is a community based organization formed by young university graduates from  Kwale county.The young and dynamic professionals were driven by their passion for development in their community, yet had been rather pained by persistent poor academic performance in the county that has deteriorated to shameful levels.
The desire to form a platform that would spur development in Kwale County was born in early 2009 and the idea of KWEA CBO was consequently championed and realized then.The name KWEA is symbolic. It is a Swahili word denoting ‘CLIMB’, meaning the upward mobility, and connoting the progressive movement and development of a people’.
The members are carefully selected volunteers with academic success stories accomplished through a lot of financial challenges due to poor backgrounds.This is to ensure that their stories inspire young learners in a bid to change their attitude towards the learning process.It began as an idea by seven young men and women in 2009,now,though core membership is restricted, KWEA has grown to a membership of 34 with the Kwale County Director Of education being the patron.
