Kenya YMCA - Indagalasia
Indangalasia YMCA was started in 1977, the branch is located in Indangalasia sub-location Koyonzo location, Matungu division of Mumias district which is found in western Kenya.
The district is the home of the Luhya community of Wanga. A few immigrants have however moved into the area especially those from the Luo community.
The landscape of Mumias district relatively varied with small hills. Numerous permanent rivers transcend up and down the area and the rainfall is very reliable. The min permanent river is Nzoia. Most part of this river can be crossed by means of boat situated in strategic places for easy access to Mumias and neighbouring Siaya district. On the same bridge there are two permanent bridges for easy accessibility.
