More than 1000 volunteers from across Australia make up the backbone of KwaYa Australia. Ordinary but extraordinary human beings take time out of their busy lives to keep the dream alive enabling us to continue to support the education and mentorship of countless children and young adults in Africa.
KwaYa is a not for profit incorporated association. We are audited and report to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission annually.
