The socio-economic status of residents in Kwale has transformed in less than five years since Kenya’s largest mining project was initiated, says the Vision 2030 Delivery Board. The Kwale Project-run by Base Titanium Limited of Australia has so far created a total of 3,400 jobs. Out of 3400 jobs 96% of the jobs are held Kenyan locals. And for every direct job created at the mine, 4.3 jobs are getting supported in the wider economy. Kwale residents account for 64 percent of the total direct jobs created.
