- Funzi Island, Kenya
- People living in the Kenyan villages of Funzi and Bodo often live without the basics of life like safe running water and electricity. Others have missed out on the opportunity to be educated or to have a job. This makes it hard for them to feed and support their families who often suffer poor health as a result of these conditions.Standards of accommodation can be very bad. Some villagers rely on Red Cross parcels to survive and have few clothes or possessions. When disability or serious illness intrudes they can’t pay for treatment or the facilities don’t exist.The Funzi and Bodo Trust (FAB) exist to try and change things for the better. Working with local people we are creating the conditions for a better environment where people can reach their true potential and where at least the basics of life are available affording a decent quality of life for all.
