Luo People of Odienya, Kenya

Video and Photos


Xperita has a long history in Kenya, specifically in the predominantly Luo region of the country near Lake Victoria. We partner directly with the Luo people in Odienya and work with a local committee of elders which decides what projects are beneficial for their community. Together, the participants and community members are building a much needed health center that will service the vast rural areas west of Odienya. The program is enriched by farmers who take time off from work on their "shambas" or farms to work side-by-side with trip participants.

Getting to Odienya is a memorable experience in itself. The scenic six-hour drive from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport through the vast hinterland where man and wildlife co-habitates freely is unforgettable. The amazing sight of the East-African setting sun ushers the team to Odienya and to Mr Tom Nyerere's guest house, our local host and committee member. Some participants extend their stay afterwards to explore the wonders of Kenya.
