About

INTRODUCTION:

The Colour Kwa Face Campaign was started by   renowned Kenyan artiste Nonini, who began helping persons with Albinism in Kenya by providing sunscreens, eye glasses, protective clothing as well as educational and vocational training assistance.

As a logical follow up to the Colour Kwa Face Campaign activities, and to meet the ever-increasing need to support people living with Albinism globally, the Colour Kwa Face Foundation was created in 2012. The foundation is a positive, sociable volunteer-run organisation that aims to provide information, advice and support for people living with Albinism and their families. The Colour Kwa Face Foundation activities and services are supported by grants and contributions primarily from other foundations, corporations, and individuals.
