Katuk is a small beautiful fishing village on the shores of Victoria Lake, this part of Kenya is one of the regions that are rated poorest

Lake Victoria:  The lake that used to be the source of life, food and general economic wellbeing has run out of fish due to obvious reason of overfishing, the water hyacinth menace and general contamination of the lake due to discharge of raw waste from cities and industries.

Hunger and poverty: This region experience the least rainfall, around the year and if some rain come, they are usually short and irregular therefore the region has an unfavourable climatic condition that do not support minimum harvest that could ensure food security.

Unemployment; The older age of Katuk never had education, as they were happy being fishermen, therefore they never did any pensionable jobs.

HIV and AIDS: With the arrival of the HIV AIDs epidemic in Africa and Kenya in the last decades, this region has been affected grossly due to the underlying negative lifestyle and cultural dynamic and believes.

The Situation Now: Now in Katuk exists a generation gap that has been created by the HIV and AIDs epidemic in the last decades. Subsequently the situation has left behind a big number of vulnerable and  orphan children who fell back into the care of their grandparents. The situation has further reduced the economic capacity of a community that is already affected by poor water supply, tropical diseases, food insecurity, cultural challenges, poverty and climate change impact.
