WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO!
Kudwa aims to fill the gap in migrant leadership within NGO space by providing opportunities for migrants and refugees to take on leadership roles and share their unique perspectives. We seek to foster spaces for intercommunity exchange, promote meaningful participation in decision-making, and increase understanding of the diverse needs of diverse migrants.
With the support of experts, community members, and key policy-makers, Kudwa will advocate for the rights and needs of migrants and refugees, their meaningful participation, and their right to access decent work and life opportunities.
Furthermore, in these ever-changing times, Kudwa can provide support for newly arrived migrants, helping them to navigate the job market and facilitate their integration and inclusion into the host society by working with them, the host community, and policy and decision-makers.
