About Us

Our Mission& Vision

Kawe is a social enterprise that aims to develop human capacity on the African continent by encouraging Africans of all ages to appreciate and embrace a reading culture. KAWE is a Yoruba word of Nigerian origin meaning to READ!

Kawe Library

Initiative which aims to improve the reading culture by investing in beautifying and equipping school libraries.

Kawe Eyes

In promoting the reading culture amongst the younger ones, poor eye health is a major constraint.

Kawe Book Club

A community of readers that meet offline and online to discuss books, social issues and ideas.

what we have done

We’ve reached over 200 students across 2 schools.

Backed by amazing volunteers, partners and sponsors, we have been able to reach over 200 students. We have achieved this feat through renovations of libraries, reading programmes, literary events and technological bootcamps.
