It was founded by Dr. Paul Gachanga Ndarua. Kiriri Women’s University has a vision aimed at addressing gender disparities in tertiary education, especially in Science and Technology. Dr. Ndarua’s dedication to women’s education dates back to 1989 when he established St. Lucie Kiriri Girls Secondary School.

His vision of an all-women’s university emerged from the need to provide a conducive environment for women to excel in higher education. He envisioned graduates becoming ambassadors of change, contributing to their communities and beyond.

Dr. Ndarua’s legacy continues as KWUST strives to empower women through education, fulfilling his vision of nurturing holistic individuals who positively impact society.
