The Kiwimbi Community Centre and Library in Amagoro was the first free public library in the county of Busia, Kenya, and is a reference point in the cultural consciousness of the area.
It welcomes between 400 and 500 visitors each day, both school children and adults. The Library actively encourages participation by groups who risk marginalisation. Access to the Library is free, which is critical in this low-income area.
The growing Art Programme and the recently founded Museum have a vital role in the preservation and transmission of local crafts and traditions. If you would like to support Kiwimbi or learn more, please be in contact! https://kiwimbi.org/programs/
