The Kenya Muslim Youth Alliance (KMYA) is an independent national youth network established in November 2003 to address the unique issues confronting young Muslims such as leadership, weak organization, low levels of civic awareness and participation; self-exclusion and marginalization; and issues around identity and citizenship.

KMYA was established on the platform of addressing the particular needs of the Muslim youth in Kenya. KMYA incorporates 153 youth-led community-based organizations, student movements, and young imams and madrassah teachers (ustadhs).

Since its inception, KMYA has piloted and tested a number of projects such as capacity-building programs for Muslim youth leaders, establishment of grassroots leadership structures, creation of a twice-monthly newspaper (The New Dawn), and civic education programming on democracy, human rights, participatory governance, and peace building and human security.
