Wasomi is a community based not-for-profit organisation registered in Kenya. A champion for the promotion of the cultural economy, the organisation promotes sustainable cultural entrepreneurship through coordination of various projects, capacity building and advocacy while at the same time preserving the culture of the Isukha people, a subethnic group of the Luyia community. The harnessing of the cultural creative economy as a result promotes peace among individuals and societal groups hence boosting development.
We help transform arts and cultural practices into beneficial entities while doing away with retrogressive practices which might be a huge hindrance to the development of the people, thus the country.
This is in line with 2005 UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions to promote sustainable development and poverty reduction through strengthening of cultural and creative sectors.
We connect the grassroots to the national and international spaces.
