The Mutomo projects
Mutomo is situated in a dry district in eastern Kenya. Most of its 220,000 inhabitants live below the official poverty line. The Mutomo project was founded by dentist Sten Kvarfordh in 2001. It is a non-profit organization whose goal is to support sustainable development and improved living conditions for the people of Mutomo.
Several Rotary Clubs, businesses, private individuals, and members work together in the Mutomo project to support its population through various projects. Donors are offered the possibility to finance specific projects such as the construction of schools, microcredit projects for 4,500 women, water projects, family planning, children’s funds and sports. Administration costs are 1%, and for a repair and maintenance fund 2% of the project cost is set aside.
