Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH)

Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH)

In Homabay County, most rural homes, markets, and school lack proper water systems, sanitation, and hygiene facilities. Many girls, women and students do trek for miles in search of water and often compete with wild and domesticated animals for the same usually in rivers, boreholes, and unprotected springs or wells.
Due to lack of sanitation and hygiene facilities, many are forced to use open defecation means (usually buses, abandon houses or structures) and there are poor waste management culture.
Locals are not only vulnerable to infections but also of underdevelopment. In fact, many girls and women have been defiled or raped on their way to rivers.
In response, we work closely with relevant agencies, organizations and individuals to engage policy makers, design and implement projects or programs that promote affordable access to clean and safe drinking water, proper and reliable sanitation and hygiene facilities in Homabay County, Kenya.
