Our Mission

Inspiring and empowering youths to transform themselves and their communities.

“Kwacha Afrika” is an indigenous coastal phrase which means ‘Arise Afrika.’ Over the years, Kwacha Afrika has grown from a purely theater-oriented organization to become a leading youth organization, which works throughout the Coast region of Kenya. The organization seeks to engage the youth both in and out of school in social and economic empowerment initiatives to uplift their living standards.

🌟 Furaha ya Siku ya Lugha ya Kiswahili Duniani! Leo tunasherehekea kwa kauli mbiu "Kiswahili: Elimu na Utamaduni wa Amani." Siku hii imejitolea kuboresha maarifa ya Kiswahili kama chombo cha amani na kuimarisha tamaduni nyingi. Tunawaheshimu watetezi mashuhuri wa Kiswahili kwa kuendeleza maadili, mawazo, na falsafa zao. 🌐📚Pia tunatathmini upatikanaji wa rasilimali na zana za lugha ya Kiswahili zinazohitajika kukuza utamaduni wa amani. Kuongeza ufahamu kuhusu muktadha wa kihistoria, hali ya sasa, na matarajio ya baadaye ya lugha ya Kiswahili kimataifa ni muhimu. 🌿🗣️Sherehe za leo zinahimiza utafiti zaidi na shughuli za kijamii na kitamaduni ili kuimarisha utamaduni mwingi kupitia Kiswahili. Tunakusudia kuimarisha shauku na matumizi ya Kiswahili miongoni mwa vijana kupitia mitandao ya kijamii, muziki, na shughuli za kitamaduni zinazolenga amani. Tushikamane na Kiswahili kama daraja la umoja na maelewano! ✨🎶 #AmaniKupitiaKiswahiliBetter COAST Organization Muslim women Advancement of Rights and Protection UNESCO Mombasa County Department of Youth, Gender, Sports & Cultural Affairs Dream Achievers Youth Organization Kenya Human Rights Agenda[HURIA] Uzalendo Afrika Initiative Youth and Women for Peace and Sustainable Development Pwani Youth NetworkManyatta Youth Entertainment- {Community based organization} Coast Education Center - COEC Jukwaa la Vijana The voice Alpha and Omega CBO Kenya Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir ActionAid Kenya Act Change Transform @followers Sisters For Justice Collaboration of Women In Development -CWID Elimu Care ForumCiv Eastern & Southern Africa Muslims for Human Rights (MUHURI) UHAKI NA USAWA Organization Reachout Centre Trust Reinvent Programme- Usalama, Ubunifu, Uthabiti Kenya Community Support Centre (KECOSCE) UNDP Kenya Kishoka YOUTH Organization Kisauni Youth Forum Kituo Cha Sheria-Legal Advice Centre Kikozi Programme Group Kadzandani Creative Youth Organization @topfans Likoni Community Development Programme - Licodep Radio Maisha LULU FM RADIO Coast Interfaith Council of Clerics Trust ...
