Nyamagesa is GHC's 9th Village, and one of our newest. It is located in Kisii County, Masaba South Sub-county, Nyaribari Masaba Constituency, Kiamokama Ward, Ibacho Location, and Nyamagesa Sub-location. It is approximately 33 KM southeast of Kisii town.
The GHC team conducted Baseline health, economic and social impact surveys on 117 households. Of those, 117 decided to join the Nyamagesa CHEC. The 24-week health curriculum will begin the first week of November '22.
Nyamagesa is an interesting village for GHC because it has one side that has health and hygiene practices in place and seems to be economically stable, while the other side is marked by extreme poverty and poor hygiene. On this side of the village, the tendency is for children not to attend school. This side also has a large number of teen pregnancies, early marriages, high consumption of alcohol and drugs, and overall ignorance about health, hygiene and other problems, compared to the other side.
GHC is currently in the middle of the health training sessions and members from both sides have shown commitment and engagement. We have taught them on how to make detergent, how best to build a kitchen garden, a latrine and a shower stall. The progress thus far has been impressive.
