This is Gituamba
Putrid water trickles down cracked and uneven streets that are flanked by shacks selling fruit and veg. There is a thick stench leaking from a nearby sewage pipe, smashed so its cargo of rotting human excrement might flow onto the adjacent fields and fertilise the food crops.
But in spite of the dirt and poverty, the lack of food, education and healthcare, there is hope. This is Gituamba.
Though Gituamba faces many challenges there is a determination to ensure that the future is more prosperous than the present. The people of Gituamba have a determination and positivity that is infectiously inspiring. We are fortunate to be working with some of the community leaders and helping to serve their vision.
