The project is located at Kisui village , Gembe West Location , Nyanza Province in Western part of Kenya a long the shores of Lake Victoria The region is inhabited by the Luo community.
The community is still attached to traditional practices which among them include women inheritance, stereotype attitude towards women,gender imbalances, high dependency ratio attributed to extended family ties.- (the culture of brotherhood,) polygamous family patterns and multiple sexual partners. Hiv/Aids prevalence rate stands at 43%.
This further attributes to high number of orphans. Poverty level in this region is one of the highest in Kenya with very little or non- saving pattern due to high unemployment rate among the youths . Most of the children are under fed , this attributes to malnutrition and its related diseases But the community is welcoming, loving and kind. Peasant farming, charcoal burning leading high level of deforestation, lowering the dignity of the MOTHER Earth , traditional fishing methods and micro business practices are the major economic activities in this area. Insecurity (ethnicity division and classes) and other forms of illness attributed to poor and inadequate health facilities further affect the region.
