Tamba Pwani

Tamba Pwani

Tamba Pwani in Swahili means ‘on the move at the coast’. It was founded by  40 members/and for  Gay men, Bisexual men, Transgender men and Male Sex Workers within Kilifi County (from Mtwapa to Malindi) in November 2010, given the urgency to increase awareness about MSM community and their health needs, in the face of ignorance, stigma and discrimination and violence.

The organization serves Gay men, Bisexual men, Transgender men and Male Sex Workers to bring reforms through trainings, workshops, experience sharing, media, in and out-reaches, in human rights and sexual health eradication, awareness, treatment and sensitization as it affects GBT & MSWs and empower them economically.

The organisation is led by five Board members and three staffs, who are all devout volunteers. The organization has six trained counsellors, 40 peer educators, one financial professional and one medical professional who lend their invaluable advice or services for free in order to meet the objectives, mission and vision of the organization.

Mission: To bring reforms through trainings, workshops, experience sharing, media, in and out-reaches, in human rights and sexual health eradication, awareness, treatment and sensitization as it affects Gay men, Bisexual men, Transgender and Male Sex Workers and empower them economically.

Vision: Equal access to health and human rights.
