The shores of Lake Victoria in Siaya County is in very western Kenya neighboring Uganda. We performed a water quality test on the Lake Victoria waters surrounding Mageta Island and the results were “unsafe for human consumption”

According to the BBC:
Increased pollution is threatening the sustainable use of Lake Victoria, a vital resource for Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, reports the BBC’s Noel Mwakugu.
Each day gallons of raw sewage and rubbish flows into the lake from houses and industries near its shores.
In Kisumu, on the Kenyan side of the lake, sewage from 20% of homes flows into the waters.

The goal is to cover four islands (Magenta Island, Sifu Island, Ndenda Island, and Oyamo Island) with UZima clean water filters along with training the people of these islands with proper hygiene practices. The results we expect will be a complete transformation of the islanders’ lives. The death rate is too high for us to sit back and watch.
