Community happens wherever people can talk and get to know each other, have a sense of belonging and can work together to build a strong, inclusive and welcoming neighbourhood for all. Kiwassa invites you to get involved, share your perspectives and contribute your strengths. You can simply enrol and enjoy training programs and services, or become actively involved in helping with community projects and initiatives.
