About us

Inspiring and empowering youths

Kwacha Afrika seeks to engage youth living in poverty both in and out of school in social and economic empowerment initiatives thereby uplifting their living standards.

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.
