Western Kenya is a beautiful region of great geographical, agricultural, cultural and natural diversity, with many tourist activities to be explored.
The people of Ndhiwa belong to the Luo tribe, a warm welcoming community with a strong spirit despite the challenges they face. Many lack things that we take for granted such as electricity, running water, sanitation, labour-saving devices, easy transport, medical care and educational opportunities.
The climate in the area is unpredictable, resulting in an insecure food supply and widespread poverty, malnutrition and poor health. However, things are changing! Karibuni eco-cottages exist to be a catalyst that enables the community in Ndhiwa to have a sustainable future. We focus on empowering women and girls to end the cycle of poverty and bring about lasting change in the community.
There are a range of projects visitors can get involved in. Team Kenya in partnership with NCEDP (Ndhiwa Community Empowerment and Development Project) and KWDI (Karibuni Women's Development Initiative) run a number of programmes.
