Program Committees


Every KCA program has a committee that consists of officials with diverse skills, expertise and experience. Most important of these officials is the drive, zeal and passion to make a change in the society. We also have committees that are meant to support the KCA Secretariat. We have both permanent and adhoc committees. The adhoc committees are usually for projects and events management.
