LIWA is an industry lead initiative to ensure that academia develops skilled and relevant human capital that is critical in driving Kenya Vision 2030 and continued development of innovation, manufacturing, and knowledge industries. Industry is keen to collaborate with academia, with government support, to initiate, facilitate and support linkage projects on all the four themes; academic accreditation, curriculum development, infrastructure development for academia, and research and development.
LIWA seeks to encourage increased sustainable engagement between all levels of academia (TIVET and higher education) with every sector of industry to support market ready human capital. Industry players are eager to support the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology (MOHEST) to identify sustainable partnerships to project Kenya into competitive global markets.

In partnership with government and academia, these private sector stakeholders founded LIWA in June 2010.
LIWA’s mission is to facilitate industry-academia linkages and, thereby, develop institutionalized and sustainable relationships between stakeholders. In so doing, LIWA plays a key role in Kenya’s economic growth. In particular, LIWA’s efforts are concentrated on:
LIWA’s vision is to improve the coordination between industry and academia so that this coordination will make a major contribution to the realization of Vision 2030 & the Millennium Development Goals (MDG'S).
