Overview

People living in the Lake Victoria Basin face urgent health, environmental, and economic challenges. They need the power to access sexual and reproductive health services and manage their natural resources sustainably. In two districts in Uganda and two counties in Kenya, the Health of People and Environment in Lake Victoria Basin (HoPE-LVB) Project is making sure they can.

Since 2011 HoPE-LVB has been working in Kenya and Uganda to lay the groundwork for sustaining healthier people and ecosystems for years to come; using model households to support the adoption of many health, livelihood, and natural resource management behaviors and techniques, engaging community groups and supporting institutional change and sustained advocacy efforts.
