five villages have been surveyed and we identified that children have been suffering from jigger infestation in silence. the effects of jigger infestation are not vague. With school going children dropping out of school.Jiggers are parasites which bury into the soles of feet and cause pain, sores and scabs. It’s very nasty and they are often cast out of the villages and are abandoned. Lots of children are affected . This is serious but can be prevented if they wear shoes.

• Creating jigger infestation awareness

• Provision of treatment and medication to

over 1000 patients.

• Fumigating over 500 homesteads.

• Distribution of over 1000 pairs of

shoes.

• Training and educating over 50

volunteers and social workers.

• Rescuing and referring severe jigger

infestation to different hospitals.

• Initiated hygiene clubs in villages in Siaya .
