BWITI ECD FURNISHED BY KWALE COUNTY GOVT.

Bwiti ECDE Centre which was officially opened on 17th June 2017 had since been operating without tables and chairs for the children forcing them to sit on the floor while learning. Msukumo Bora and Hakijamii conducted advocacy on the same by each separately writing to the County Executive Committee Member Education.

Msukumo Bora is a committee made up of 14 members (9 men and 5 women) who are affected by the currently ongoing Base Titanium mining project. The members come from Bumamani, Magaoni, Mwaloya, Nguluku, Nora, Kibwaga, Miembeni, Vumbu and Bwiti.  Mskumo Bora was formed by Hakijamii to enable residents of Kwale (especially the project affected persons) to be able to speak with one voice on matters of budget and public participation and to enable them to actively participate in the budget processes so that their villages can also be included in the County projects.

The advocacy efforts bore fruit as the County Government of Kwale has now furnished the school.
