Fordingbridge Rotary has struck an allegiance with the Mugumoini Rotary community in Kenya. Mugumoini Civic Ward holds one of Africa’s largest slums, with over 500,000 people living there below the African poverty line.
The objectives of the project are to alleviate all the suffering associated with this poverty, including encouraging people to take responsibility, with self-help projects, setting up a welfare centre, help with sanitising projects to help the Aids and Covid problems, while continuing with existing conservation and business start-up activities.
Future envisaged projects include building a library, and a self-help market. The manager/Chairman, who is currently living in Fordingbridge, is Ken Charles Onuko, who is pictured above
