Where We Work
SANGO-Kenya works in Kisumu County, Kenya, near the shores of Lake Victoria. SANGO is the name for Lake Victoria in the Dholuo language, the local language spoken by the Luo people.
The area in which we work has an arid climate, with inadequate and unreliable rainfall, and poor soil conditions. Despite its proximity to Lake Victoria, no irrigation is available.
These conditions result in an ever-increasing risk of increased rates of hunger as well as food and nutrition insecurity. Further, changes in climate patterns increase the challenge of ensuring a sustainable, resilient food system.
