Where we work

Sadiki works in the western part of Kenya, west of Kisumu, near Lake Victoria and the border with Uganda. We support projects in the rural village of Kwangamor, and in the small town of Yala.

Kwangamor

Kwangamor is a village in Teso District, Western Province. Kwangamor is home to about 250 families. The homes are quite spread out. There is only one tarred road in Teso District. Kwangamor is about 14 kilometres from it.

Most of the people living in Kwangamor are subsistence farmers. They live in houses made of mud, with a thatched or corrugated iron roof. Some of the children are malnourished. There is no electricity, no running water and no clinic, although potable groundwater is generally available through wells or bore holes. There are a large number of widows, and a few child-headed households. The people cook mainly on firewood, but sometimes use charcoal. The area is largely deforested.

Yala

Yala is a small town in Siaya District, Nyanza Province, in western Kenya. It is about 45 kilometres from Kisumu, Kenya's third largest city. Those living in town have intermittent electricity and water. Those in the surrounding villages do not. Unemployment is a big problem, particularly amongst young people.
