Lake Victoria from Rusinga island

Lake Victoria from Rusinga island

Western Kenya

Whatever is written here won’t do it justice. It is the land of the Luo tribe and others and the birth place of Tom Mboya who might have been Kenya's president had he not been assasinated. It is a deprived part of Kenya and in the Homa Bay area, one in 4 children don’t make it to the age of 5. Homa bay also has the highest level of teenage pregnancy in Kenya so there is much to do.

It is beautiful.  Lake Victoria dominates creating a climate that is humid hot and as a result abundant in maize, cabbage, and many other crops alongside fish from the lake. 

To get there is a one hour flight acros the rift valley or an 8 hour drive - which has to be one of the greatest because of the scenery and the culture.
