Ititi is Global Health Connections 7th village to date. It is located in Kisii County, Kitutu chache south constituency, Bogeka Ward. Ititi village is located in a rural-urban area, and the majority of villagers live in mud walled houses that are poorly smeared and unkempt. Most roofs leak whenever it rains. Some compounds are dirty and disorganized, with dirt everywhere.
The village has approximately 150 households and GHC surveyed 50 of those in November of 2021. The survey included questions on their nutritional intake, water sources and their personal/ household hygiene, along with income-generating activities. The majority of villagers receive their daily income from doing contract work on other people's farms.
80% of Club participants are women.
We started the 24-week health curriculum in mid-February of 2022. We hope to increase the health of the villagers, via improved sanitation, proper water and food storage. Following the health training, we will begin the Economic Empowerment curriculum. The economic activities we will present are agricultural-based, and will be guided by our experienced team. Since most of the Club members are farmers, we believe they will enjoy engaging in something in which they are already well-versed, while at the same time earning an income.
