The Great Rift Valley runs
through Kenya and the Western Rift
Valley down the border of Uganda and Congo. The region
also has high mountain ranges, tropical rain forests, areas of dry semi-desert and many
lakes and rivers.
There are semi-nomadic and agrarian tribes, with Bantu, Nilotic and Nilo-Harmite
language groups, making this a fascinating region. This means that to be effective, we
have to be sensitive to the people we work with.
