Kwale county looks like a true paradise: palm-fringed tropical beaches overlooking the deep blue Indian Ocean. The area is located on the coast south of Kenya’s second largest city Mombasa and stretches all the way to the border with Tanzania. The seaside village Diani is the main beach destination in the country. However, looking beyond the beaches, the poverty in Kwale’s interior cannot be missed. Almost three quarters of its 650,000 inhabitants live below the poverty line of less than one US dollar a day. This makes Kwale one of Kenya’s poorest counties.
