Kisumu Meta Meta Network

Kisumu Meta Meta Network (KIMEN) is a collaboration of the ministry of health, the police Department, NGOs and CBOs. KIMEN targets vulnerable women within Kisumu District.

They include orphans, street children, pregnant teenagers an married adolescents, widows, women heading households, sex workers, and women living with HIV.
