Mtwapa Center


Mtwapa is known in Mombasa and throughout Kenya for its sex industry. It is located on Malindi Highway in Mombasa, and has an estimated population of 100,000. The HIV infection rate is currently at 5.4%. The population is growing at a rapid rate because of the tourist industry and an influx of big business (Coastal Bottlers, a Coca-Cola bottling plant is located in town). These factors combined with the prevalence of Islam have created a difficult environment for many church leaders. We are confident that with the right church partnership, we can make a huge impact in this community through the CARE for AIDS program.
