Tang’neduk is a community based project found by Debora and Paul Odiwuor. We welcome communication from other individuals, groups and organisations who have an interest in our project.
We are located in Kawiya village on the rural outskits of Homa Bay town Nyanza province. The project was formed as result of rural migration resulting from the 2007 general election conflict in Kenya that has led to social discrimination and violation of human rights. We are 20km south east of Lake Victoria which lies on the hinterlands of Rangwe Division-Central Kochia.
Homa Bay town’s climatic condition is semi-arid and it has two rainy seasons. Long rains which falls between the months of March and May while short rains fall between September and November with approximately measurements of 1180 millimeters. It has temperature range between 26-28 oC. Our average daily temprature in Kawiya village is 32C.
