The Kenya Association for the Welfare of People with Epilepsy [KAWE] is a non-profit making organization that comprehensively targets and addresses issues of people with Epilepsy. Through a community participatory approach, KAWE is committed to addressing the needs of people living with epilepsy in a holistic and integrated manner.
KAWE was established in Nairobi, Kenya in 1982 by Mrs. Caroline Pickering following an interest developed after her daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 12. Due to lack of adequate and social support, she decided to start a program on epilepsy and support those people who lived in the slums, could not afford treatment and were characterized with uncontrolled fits.
To improve the quality of life of people living with epilepsy, empowering them to realize their full potential.
KAWE envisions a society in which people with epilepsy are free from stigma and are able to access quality epilepsy care from government and other public health facilities.
Our goal is to develop and sustain a comprehensive and integrated epilepsy program that is affordable and accessible to all people suffering from epilepsy countrywide.
