EPAfrica Project Workers spend most of the summer living in rural areas where our schools are located. However, Project Managers and Coordinators are based in a town nearby, and Project Workers are free to come back here to buy supplies, rest, and meet up at the central house. Take a look through our photo tour of Kakamega Town, one of these central sites!
Kakamega Town Centre
Tour Africa, our favourite eating spot! Fantastic meals and delicious mandazi, a sweet treat to have with Kenyan tea.
Neighbouring Tour Africa is the famous Juice Lady, who serves the tastiest drinks in town.
…and whatever can’t be found there is bound to be available in Tuskys, Kakamega’s best supermarket.
Mitra Enterprises is a regular hardware supplier for our project workers, with great prices and friendly owners…
…and if we need textbooks, Safi is the best place to go!
A two minute walk from all this, and we’re headed back towards the lush Kenyan countryside.
We love Kakamega!
Nicole is Communications and Information Manager on the Management Committee, and will be a coordinator for the second half of the project in Kenya during the project this summer
