kwaYa is a not for profit incorporated association (with charity status) founded by President, Marsha Gusti.
It is based on the Gold Coast, Australia and has a dual purpose.
The Arts - The kwaYa Cross-Cultural Connections Program fosters, promotes and generates cross cultural partnerships between non Indigenous Australian singers, Australian indigenous groups and indigenous communities abroad.
The arts program aims to:
boost widespread active community participation
focus on skills development for emerging artists
advance cultural diversity and preserve cultural heritage
Our rationale is to afford opportunities that strengthen and develop cultures and encourage social inclusion.
Benevolence - Kwaya provides unique opportunities enabling non indigenous and indigenous communities to unite and work together on projects that make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged women and children in remote areas in Australia and abroad.
Welcome! My name is Marsha Gusti and I am proud to lead dedicated kwaYa teams each year to Uganda. Teams made up of volunteers from all over the world who are excited about sharing a cultural experience whilst making a difference.
