Who are we

The Kenya Association of Women in Tourism (KAWT) is a non-profit association, whose primary mandate is to provide a platform for women’s empowerment through engagement, employment and participation in the tourism industry.

Through its advocacy and networks, it aims to bring gender aspects of tourism to the attention of policy makers, especially the issues of women’s employment in the tourism industry as well as women’s participation in tourism planning, management and development.

The Association is responding to a growing interest in opportunities in tourism as well as a need for a formal platform for women’s voice in one of the country’s key economic pillars.
