|Welcome by Asunta Wagura, executive director of KENWA||Share This!|
Hello and a warm welcome to KENWA, the Kenya Network of Women with AIDS. I am Asunta Wagura, the executive director of this organisation. I thank you very much for visiting our website.
Our NGO is fighting against the devastating effects of AIDS on the Kenyan society. We have offices in slums where some 30% of the population have HIV and support over 7'000 women and 1'700 orphans and vulnerable children. AIDS destroys the social fabric of our society by sickening or killing our mothers and fathers in their prime. The situation is genuinely unacceptable because prevention and treatment could be accessible to everybody.
Being a local NGO in Nairobi, we have a tiny overhead and put donations to their best use. However, because we lacked funding this year, we were no longer able to provide as much emergency nutrition as before.
So, please, look around our website to see how we fight against AIDS. But too consider donating money, be the amount yet so small. With the cost of a cup of coffee in some restaurants in Europe or America (3$) we can, for example, feed three orphans for the day.
For development students and other interested people, we offern an internship program that lets you experience the untouristic part of Africa first hand!
I thank you for your interest in KENWA and hope you find the information on this website helpful. If you have a question, you can contact me directly. Until then, good bye!
