seven young men who finished school and could not acquire employment. Their time was mostly settled on how the community can
become self efficient and having sustainable projects with the available resources

come up with solutions to help update the community poverty level through Education and creating several awareness to make
the community understand their poverty situations and child youth upbringing.

activities, HIV/Aids awareness programmes, less than five growth monitoring, primary health care, Malaria control programs-mainly
the larvae control in Rusinga Island and agro-forestry which is currently
focused with the UNDP.
