“We thought every woman was aware about where and how to put on masks, we were wrong, she confidently put it on to cover her eyes”, tells our local social entrepreneurial partner from WAWA NGO in Kenya.

Also in Western Kenya, in the Homabay area at lake Victoria where Cavin and his team from WA-WA NGO have started to produce masks and to distribute them to Selfhelp group women who in the last year have been involved into the fish growing projects. These are women living in extreme poverty, often with a lot of children, a low education level and HIV positive – because they have sold themselves for fish before joining WAWA projects.
