Shaping the future, one craftsman at a time

Our Programs

MWAKA undertakes several programs all aimed at advancing the interests of the members of the Association through beneficial interactions with other players in the industry, including regulators, training authorities, commercial interests and other industry stakeholders, as well as the general public at large.

Brand Ambassadors

MWAKA’s Brand Ambassadors Program is a groundbreaking, strategic initiative that harnesses the diversity of our membership to create a formidable and symbiotic partnership with innovators, marketers, manufacturers and suppliers of materials, products and technologies deployed in the construction sector. The core proposition of this Program is for these commercial partners to work with MWAKA to deliver specialized product knowledge and training to our vast membership network and to leverage this training to spearhead and deepen their commercial growth.

By investing in the skills and knowledge required to deploy their specific products and technologies, the innovators, marketers, manufacturers and suppliers we work with on this Program not only guarantee themselves access to a dedicated, well-trained workforce that is available to deploy on projects where these products can be applied, but they also guarantee quality workmanship in delivering the final product to their end-user customers.

The Program is a direct market penetration strategy which yields a win-win result for our members and our partners. It also solves the problem of generating awareness for little-known technologies ensuring faster uptake and acceptance by the artisans who have a well-developed understanding of their use, their application, installation, fitting and servicing. Through this Program, MWAKA aims to create a symbiotic ecosystem of growth and opportunity for both its members and its commercial partners.
