Empowerment January 10, 2020
A large number of locals in Kisumu West are fishermen, dependent on the Lake Victoria to sustain their livelihood. Even though fishing is the most dominant element of sustenance for Charlton Omollo and his colleagues, the lack of life jackets posed a challenge, endangering their lives. This in turn meant that the group could not go fishing during seasons of high tide, inhibiting their ability to make a living. Charlton, concerned for his safety and that of his peers, reached out for a wish fulfillment through Ndoto Zetu. The Safaricom Foundation handed over life jackets to the fishermen. Now Omollo and his comrades have better safety measures and can earn a living throughout the various seasons.
