Mentoring the girl child

Endowed with two of Kenya’s important natural resources;Lake Victoria and River Nzoia,Budalang’i in Busia county is only famed for flooding.

These resources provide a source of livelihood to the communities around.The resources however,are associated with the increased levels of school dropouts,teenage pregnancies and HIV/AIDS infection among the girl child in Budalang’i,Busia county.Thus creating the need for empowerment and mentorship.
