Program Title: WINGS #36-20 COVID in Kenya [Week of 21 Dec]
Description: Measures taken by the Kenyan government to stop the spread of COVID include imposing a curfew, travel bans, and closing schools. But they've provided no income supplements for small business and workers in the informal sector. Problems to solve include food scarcity, how families make a living, large numbers of idle men, and an increase in sexual violence and "defilement" of girls. Adhiambo gives examples of actions NGOs are taking to help.

Host(s): Diana Wanyonyi and Frieda Werden.
Featured Speakers/Guests: Eunice Adhiambo is Programs officer of the Levite Foundation. Her job is managing economic development projects, mainly with women, on the south coast of Kenya.

Credits: Interview by Diana Wanyonyi. WINGS Series Producer, Frieda Werden.
