something about Dunga Beach

Nairobi

This is an overnight trip. Doing 80-100kph, if you leave Nairobi at noon by sunset you should be there comfortably having passed through Nakuru, kericho,

then onto Kisum ‘dalo’
There are a number of hotels to cater for all categories within or around the town centre.
Next morning head south of the town past Swara game reserve onto a murram road that brings you to a gate at Dunga beach. If you’re early you will be Lucky to find the fish market going on, if not the locals have formed an association that can both provide a fun relaxing (and educative) boat tour or a tour of the beach where you learn about some of the 300+fish types of Lake victoria

As for the experimentative types borrow/hire a local fishing line

and bait a ‘small’ fish at the shore line which can be dip fried for you on the spot.

Helping girls and Young women

The single most important challenge facing Kenya today is breaking the grip of poverty. The social situation is characterized by growing number of HIV/AIDS orphans, unemployment, child labour and  violence. Girls and women of all ages still have a very limited say over their lives and in particular over their sexuality.

The main problems faced by women and girls are:

  • The expense of commercial sanitary pads;
  • absenteeism where girls stay at home rather than attending school when menstruating;
  • unhygienic ways to dry menstrual materials;
  • inadequate waste disposal facilities;
  • lack of privacy for changing menstrual materials;
  • leakage from poor-quality protection materials;
  • the lack of resources for washing such as soap;
  • limited education about the facts of menstruation;
  • limited access to counselling and guidance;
  • fear caused by cultural myths;
  • embarrassment and low self esteem;
  • and  the unsupportive attitudes of some men.

This blog aims at connecting Dunga Beach to potential customers to savour the beauty of lake victoria, culture and environment
