Building KAWT

In 2010, when Kenya was approaching a peak of 1.8 Million tourists, the Kenya Association of Women in Tourism was founded in response to women showing a growing interest in opportunities in the tourism industry. KAWT's primary mandate is to provide a platform for women’s empowerment through engagement, employment and participation in the tourism industry.

KAWT aims in bringing gender aspects of tourism to the attention of policymakers, especially the issues of women’s employment and active participation in the tourism industry.

Here are the milestones of building KAWT
