PAWA Initiative popularly known as PAWA254 is a nonprofit established in Kenya in 2010. It is an art and cultural collaborative hub that houses, fosters, and catalyzes creative and community-driven projects for social change. PAWA is an “artivism” organization that creatively integrates art and activism to promote active civic participation, human rights, livelihoods, and employment development for Kenyan youth. PAWA leverages the power of arts to strengthen understanding and exploration of emerging issues in Kenya and increase youth involvement in positive development processes. It works with artists, awakening in them a deep socioeconomic and political consciousness by empowering them to connect their art to the pursuit of a better Kenya. PAWA254 works closely with community groups and like-minded civil society organizations in the governance and human rights space championing human rights while advocating for accountability in utilization of public resources.
