about/ About us
Our basic concern & passion project
With the MWAZARO Beach Lodge we fundamentally support not only the local population with about 30 jobs and thus the support of the families of our employees, but also other families by using local suppliers for furniture, bedding and linen, fruit, vegetables, meat, and much more.
The project closest to our heart, however, is our commitment to deaf children in Kenya. During private vacations in Mwazaro, the current team founded a non-profit association, Aid Kenya Watoto e.V., to build and support a school for deaf children in the region – the Kidimu School for the Deaf. This project has grown continuously since then and is now a fully registered boarding school for over 60 children with a dormitory, several classrooms, a dining room with kitchen, including a chicken and vegetable farm. In this school the children get a chance for equal education with other children and the necessary foundation for independence later in life.
With the MWAZARO Beach Lodge we would also like to bring this passion project closer to our guests: on the one hand through visits to the school and to enable you to spend unforgettable hours with lots of fun with our children. On the other hand there are theme days for the children in the lodge, where they sometimes see the beach for the first time in their lives.
We support the school with donations from the profits of our business. Every single guest helps and therefore supports our passion project with every overnight stay with us and conjures a smile in the faces of children. Thank you!
